Enjoy the only Mosque-Cathedral in Europe

The guided visit to the Mosque of Cordoba that we propose you in OWAY Tours will allow you to discover the only mosque-cathedral in Europe, declared Cultural Patrimony of the Humanity by the UNESCO in 1984. The Mosque of Cordoba became the second largest mosque in the world, after the Mosque of Mecca, and now you can visit it accompanied by a specialized guide who will tell you all the secrets and curiosities taking a nice walk inside.

The visit begins in the well known courtyard of the Naranjos (know more about the courtyards of Cordoba), where, you can see the great bell tower that houses inside the wonderful minaret of the Aljama Mosque built by Abd al-Rahman III. With this tour of the Mosque of Cordoba you will be able to skip the line, so once we have commented on the most interesting aspects of the exterior we will go inside the Mosque avoiding unnecessary waiting.

Once inside, you can be surprised as you walk along the 1,300 columns that make up the building. From the founding Mosque ordered to be built by Abd al-Rahman I in the year 786, the journey through time takes us to the first extension. There, the self-proclamation of Abd al-Rahman III as Caliph took place, starting the Independent Caliphate of Al-Andalus, the period of greatest cultural splendour of the city of Qurtuba.

The tour of the Mosque of Cordoba ends with a spectacular finale. You will discover the magnificent Cathedral Cruise, which was started in 1523 inside the Mosque and which makes it the only European Mosque with a Cathedral inside.
