What To Expect

Get ready to discover a truly one-of-a-kind monument with this guided tour of the great Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba, the city's most important monument and a symbol of its history. Witness the breathtaking synthesis of the Islamic and Christian traditions that forged the history of Córdoba and admire the amazing interiors of this peculiar cathedral.Built upon the old Great Mosque of Córdoba, which in turn was constructed on an old Christian church, the cathedral symbolizes the past of the city, with a structure still based on the old Muslim precepts and adorned with Christian symbols and sculptures. It is thus a perfect example of Moorish and Christian architecture, making it a truly one-of-a-kind monument. The building comprises the courtyard (Patio de Los Naranjos), where the laminar or minaret is found, and the interior space, which features impressive columns along with red and white arches.Thanks to this guided tour you'll have the opportunity to discover a spectacular monument: learn more about the long history and the wonderful art of the cathedral and discover why it was listed by UNESCO in 1984 as a World Heritage Site.
