Cordoba Historical Tour

Highlights / General details
Standing in the historic center, the Great Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba is one of the most beautiful examples of Muslim art in Spain, built in 785 by the Muslim emir Abdurrahman I on the site of the ancient Visigoth church of San Vicente.

The mosque underwent consecutive extensions over the subsequent centuries. Abdurrahman III had a new minaret built whilst in 961 Al-Hakam II extended the ground plan and decorated the "mihrab" (prayer niche). The last renovation was carried out by Al-Mansur in 987. As a result, the interior resembles a labyrinth of beautiful columns with double arcades and horseshoe arches.

After the Christian conquest in 1523, the cathedral was built inside, and features highlights such as the main altarpiece, the Baroque altarpiece and the mahogany choir stalls. The "mihrab" is considered one of the most important in the Muslim world, and is the finest piece in the mosque. The courtyard of the Orange Trees leads to the complex.
