Full description
Your tour starts in the Patio de los Naranjos, the main courtyard of the Mosque, where you can observe the Great Bell Tower that is kept inside the marvelous alminar built by Abd al-Rahman III. Once inside, marvel at the 1,300 columns that form the building. From the first building ordered by Abd al-Rahman I in the year 786, this trip though time takes you until the first expansion, when Abd al-Rahman III was proclaimed as the first Caliph, starting the Independent Caliphate of Al-Andalus, the most splendid period of Qurtuba. Then, marvel at the final expansion ordered by Al-Hakam II, considered to reflect the power and splendor of that era. Here, you can also observe the amazing Mihrab, an exquisitely decorated arch. This last part of the visit will invite you to discover the magnificent cruise in the cathedral, built in 1523 and is the heart of this Islamic building. Observe the great Renaissance bolt that covers the cruise. Then, you can direct your view to the choir in the cathedral, with a precious mahogany wood created by the sculptor from Seville, Pedro Duque Cornejo.
