If you feel like the cathedral has no business being inside the mosque, don’t blame yourself: you are not the only one to think so. Very few buildings are like this.
Once a magnificent mosque at the heart of Moorish culture, now a baroque cathedral and place of contemplation.
Despite the baroque additions, the Moorish mosque is still a jewel. You can imagine there is no church, and the place is full of light. You will see a grove of columns, an oasis of date trees made of stone. As it used to be.
Your guide will lead you next to the Alcazar and the synagogue. Here, you will be touched to see Hebrew inscriptions with Moorish decoration. Such harmony between styles is what makes Cordoba and its Mezquita one of the world’s most remarkable settings.
