About this experience

Meet our official tour guide, discover the secrets of this incredible cathedral and experience a masterpiece that combines Christian and Arab art.
In fact, it is considered one of the most important expressions of the Arab and Islamic art and, nonetheless, a great work of Gothic and Renaissance Andalusian Art.
It was originally a Christian Visigoth Church dedicated to Saint Vincent. When Muslims occupied Córdoba, the building was split into two parts in order to be used both Christians and Muslims.
Subsequently, Emir ʿAbd al-Raḥmān ibn Muʿāwiya ordered to tear down the Christian Church in order to build a proper mosque.
The Mezquita of Córdoba is shaped like a quadrangle from around 130 meters in width and from around 180 meters in length. It included 19 aisles and 856 columns with different styles of capitals.
You will admire the Main Altar of the Cathedral built in 1627 which is similar to the altar made by Juan de Herrera for the Church of the Monastery of San Lorenzo de El Escorial.
Don't miss the maqsuramihrab (apse) with other decorative highlights.
In 2010, the Spanish Bureau of Engraving and Printing dedicated a Commemorative 2 Euro coins to the Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba: a fair tribute for one of the most incredible Spanish monuments of all time.
