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.
