Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba

Get Lost in the Grandeur of the Great Mosque
Cordoba, once the heartland and homeland of the Moors, now is a traditional Spanish city with a slightly different beat.

The Great Mosque oozes Islamic culture from the outside, having been the lifeblood of the city since the 8th century. With a seemingly endless corridor of columns, the great Mosque demands your awe.

However, you will notice there is something unusual about the Mosque - it’s now a Catholic church! There are remnants of the original details, verses from the Quran and typical engravings, but they are intermingled with crosses and Catholic statues.

This is truly a religious and cultural melting pot that has to be seen to be understood.
