Full description

Meet your experienced guide who will have a profound knowledge of both the Mosque-Cathedral itself and its contents. After being provided with a headset, start your tour by listening to an introduction to the history of the mosque.

Explore the courtyard of the complex, called the Patio de los Naranjos. Soak up the atmosphere of this peaceful space with lots of greenery, and marvel at the beautiful Bell Tower. Then skip the ticket line to enter the monument without any hassle.

Follow your guide as they take you around the mosque. Hear about its design, and why the monument is one of the most important buildings in Islamic architecture. Admire the Prayer Hall, the Mihrab, and the famous red and white arches.

The tour itself and the guide were excellent. Explained everything clearly and got a lot of history and information into a short space of time. Enthusiasm and passion for the subject. The only downside was that our time was changed with less than 24 hours notice and no reason given until I had messaged several times and only one alternative time option was offered.

Any visit to the beautiful city of Cordoba must include the Mosque-Cathedral. A stunning building with so many incredible features. The experience was enhanced by our very knowledgeable guide who took us through the historical milestones in a very interesting presentation.

The guide should speak slower. Sometimes seemed that she could not breath, so some part of her explanations were not very clear One again we have been waiting meanwhile she was purchasing the tickets, seems this yo be an area of improvement in general
