Full description

Meet your experienced guide who will have a profound knowledge of both the Mosque-Cathedral itself and its contents. 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. Hear about its design, and why the monument is one of the most important buildings in Islamic architecture. Admire the Prayer Hall, the Mihrab, and the famous red and white arches.

Learn about the construction of the Mosque-Cathedral in the 8th century. Find out from your guide about the different expansions of the building, and all the hidden details of the architecture.

The guide was very experienced and knowledgeable of the history and architecture of the Mezquita Cathedral. He was also well organized and managed a large group. The use of headphones was key to following what he was saying in what could be a noisy crowded space. The only downside is that it was not possible to wander around and see a lot of the huge inside of the Mezquita Cathedral as we were following a set path and then listening to the guide. Understandable given the popularity of the monument. Overall a very good experience!

Our guide was very good. L in use a lot of passion for the explanation but the visit has a limited time and it gave us time to take photos and we were left with the desire. We also found out that they should give you the physical ticket because with it it gives you the option to visit other buildings for free but nobody told us until we went to enter one of the ones that were included with the mosque..... Look carefully for the prices because I think the same group paid a different price. There was not much difference in price but some paid one and another euro and a half less

Memorable and extraordinary place: When you walk through the door you feel like you have been transported several centuries back, The guide had her own style to explain the place to us, What bothered us the most was that the audio equipment we had ready during the visit is not reliable, I advise you to get closer to the guide because sometimes you hear nothing.
