Full description
Begin your tour in the Courtyard of the Orange Trees at the entrance of the bell tower of the Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba. Enter the Mosque-Cathedral and be amazed by the blending of the two distinct religious cultures of Islam and Christianity. As you walk through the building learn about its long history, how it was built between the 8th and 16th-centuries, and its past as first a mosque and now a cathedral. Spend approximately an hour and 15 minutes in the Mosque-Cathedral. Afterward, head to the Alcazar of the Catholic Monarchs, skip the line to enter and spend about an hour here. Discover how the old palace was built in the 14th-century to conquer the last Arabic Kingdom of the Iberian Peninsula. Your tour concludes in the marvelous gardens of the Alcazar where you can take as many pictures as you want.

Muy buena experiencia de este Tour por la Mezquita-Catedral y el Alcázar. La guía (Eva) excepcional, con mucho conocimiento y pedagogía al explicar todo lo que hemos visto en esta maravilla en Córdoba; además de ser una persona con mucha amabilidad, paciencia y empatía. Muy puntual y bastante bien organizado el tour. Recomendable 100%.

La verdad que tienen de todo , tanto las actividades de pago como, las del free tour , muy bien organizado por grupos . Estaría bien poner los turnos con un poco más de tiempo ya que luego te vas encontrando con ellos y tienes que esperar y en la mezquita el último turno no tiene tiempo para poder visitarla de manera libre , se debería dejar más margen .
