Full description
Meet your experienced guide outside the Mosque-Cathedral. After being provided with a headset, start your tour by listening to an introduction to the history of the mosque. Explore the courtyard of the complex, called the Patio de los Naranjos. Soak up the atmosphere of this peaceful space with lots of greenery, and marvel at the beautiful Bell Tower. Then skip the ticket line to enter the monument without any hassle. Follow your guide as they take you around the mosque. Admire the Prayer Hall, the Mihrab, and the famous red and white arches, and take pictures as you go around. Your guide will tell you about the different expansions of the building, and all the hidden details of the architecture. Next, join a walking tour around the historical Jewish Quarter, a must-do when in Córdoba. Start in Calleja de la Hoguera, where your guide will discuss the Jewish heritage of the area, and its importance in the city's development. Stroll around the El Zoco artisans market, the picturesque Plaza del Cardenal Salazar, and the narrow Calleja de la luna. See the souk, the Chapel of Saint Bartholomew, and the statue of one of the most important thinkers in the world: Maimónides. You will also head inside the Synagogue, one of the best-preserved in Spain.

We did the tour of the Mosque and the Jewish quarter. The great mosque, very interesting but the Jewish quarter was too fast. Little detailed compared to the mosque, I understand that this is the crown jewel but I think that the tour of the Jewish quarter should be given more importance.

We loved this visit. The monument of the cathedral mosque is impressive. Our guide Miguel was super pedagogical and friendly. He made our visit very pleasant and we imagined each of the situations that he explained to us throughout the history of the monument. 100% recommendable. We made the visit to the Jewish quarter with another guide, David. Also very entertaining and educational. To repeat!

La visita a la mezquita estuvo muy bien. Nuestra guía Pilar fue todo un encanto. Lo hizo ameno y divertido. Luego nos fuimos con otra guía Adela al barrio judío, quién también nos explicó exhaustivamente las diferentes zonas y que podíamos visitar por nuestra cuenta. Muchas gracias a las 2.
