Visiting the Mosque of Cordoba

The Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba is one of the most important buildings in world art. It was built when this city was the capital of the world, and today it still preserves all its splendour. It is the city's main tourist attraction, although there are many other things of interest, which we will talk about later.

The Cordoba Mosque is the largest and most important mosque in the West. It was the second largest mosque in the world, after Mecca, until the Blue Mosque in Istanbul was built. Impressive, isn't it?

How long does it take to visit the Mosque of Cordoba?

The Mosque of Cordoba has a surface area of 23,400 square metres and more than 1,300 columns, so the ideal time to visit the interior of the mosque is 1 hour 30 minutes. We recommend that you walk around the outside of the mosque to admire all its doors and enter the courtyard of the orange trees. If you want to visit this monument calmly and completely, you will need almost 3 hours to enjoy the whole monument.

The curiosity about the Mosque of Cordoba

Here are some interesting facts about the Mosque of Cordoba:

  1. The surprising thing about the Mosque of Cordoba is that it is also a Cathedral. The coexistence of religions in the same temple is something truly amazing and worthy of admiration.

  2. More than 60,000 believers could pray inside this mosque.
  3. On 2 November 1984, UNESCO declared the Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba a "World Heritage Site".
