The inside story

Soaring double arches, granite columns and intricate geometric decorations: the Cathedral-Mosque of Cordoba (also known as the Mezquita) is a serene yet awesome beauty. Not only a magnificent example of Moorish and Islamic architecture, it’s also a fascinating reflection of the city’s past and the many civilizations that once inhabited it.

Built In 784 by Abd al-Rahman I on the site of a former Visigoth church, it was expanded several times over by later Muslim rulers until the Reconquista in 1236, when Cordoba once again fell under Christian rule. It was then converted into a Roman Catholic church, which led to the addition of a Renaissance cathedral nave and its unusual status as a cathedral-mosque.

Highlights include the tree-filled Patio de los Naranjas, the immense forest of columns, the birds-eye view from the belltower and, of course, the ornate interior. Inside the prayer hall, the mihrab (prayer niche) and maksura where the elite would have prayed are fantastically decorated and arguably the most beautiful parts of the whole mosque.
