Full description
Let an expert take you on a private tour inside the most important building of Cordoba, the Great Mosque-Cathedral. The Cathedral is a spectacular testimony to the age of the caliphate, when Islam ruled. Explore the former Islamic mosque, which has been a Catholic cathedral since the Conquest. Discover an amazing mixture of architectural styles, constructed over 9 centuries. Standing in the historic center of Cordoba, the Mosque-Cathedral is one of the most beautiful examples of Muslim art in Spain. It was first built in 785 by the Muslim emir Abderrahman I, on the site of an ancient Visigoth church of San Vicente. Once outside the building, wander through the narrow streets of the Jewish Quarter and learn about its history. At the end of the tour, your guide will be happy to help you find a local restaurant or a tavern for tapas and can give you recommendations for other places to see in the city.

    Luis was an outstanding guide in every respect!

    We used your service for a walking tour of The Mezquita and The Jewish Quarter. Luis was punctual, friendly and extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the tour. He was a true expert in the subject of the tour, and, as a result, we had a fascinating time. Extremely satisfied with this tour, and we would highly recommend it.

    Sehr umfassende Erklärungen zu historischen Hintergründen und zur Entwicklung der Moschee und der Kathedrale. Viele Details wurden anschaulich erklärt, so dass auch unsere Kinder begeistert waren! Für unsere Kinder war auch die Führung in deutscher Sprache und die kleine Gruppe ein Gewinn, da sie viel nachfragen konnten. Obwohl keine Zeitersparnis (da keine Schlange), würde ich die Führung wieder buchen! Vielen Dank an die Guide!
