Mezquita Opening Hours and Entry Fees

by Venelin

Hello.

I read in the Lonely Planet guidebook for Andalusia that the entry to the Cordoba mosque is free in the morning until 10am, only for individual visitors, but not for groups. However, the website of the mosque does not list any such possibility. Can anyone confirm or deny this piece of information? I would assume that the administration of this famous sight does not particularly like to emphasize on the fact that you can enter for free, but it could be that LP is wrong, of course.

Thank you in advance
Venelin

Hi

I was part of a tour group and I do recall our tour director informing us that if we entered the mosque before 10am there was no charge. This was in 2005 and the policy may have changed though. The Mezquita is a must see site and well worth it even if you have to pay.

We visited last December and we did not pay to enter early in the morning. The visit at that time is actually the best because it's very peaceful.

Thank you for the replies. I guess I will try to enter before 10 o'clock, if possible.

I know that the mosque is an outstanding monument worth buying an expensive ticket, but as a student I am still spoiled by student discounts and an entry price of 8 euro is something that I would like to avoid if I can.

Certainly the doors to the courtyard on the west side of the Cathedral / Mezquita open at 8.30 am and it is well worth entering at this hour before most have woken. The grand internal vast space of the Mezquita with the Cathedral within the original walls is wonderful and you can wander around free of any tour party. The doors are of course opened at this early hour for a purpose - to allow entry for the morning mass. This is a Cathedral after all and not only a museum. The attendants may usher you out as 10 am approaches in order that they can check the fee paying tourists but for me, skipping breakfast (returning to it later) and being the first in the Mezquita, was awesome.
If the authorities have changed these early opening hours for individual visits then I will be shocked and outraged. But I doubt.

Yes, mezquita is free in the mornings.

I visited the mosque this June, however, I couldn't avail the discount because of time constraints.

Do read the history of the mosque before you visit otherwise it would not be worth it.

Travel Tips for Córdoba

Cordoba - History

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

It is considered, that Romans established a colony Cordoba in II century before Christmas. This city was the capital of Roman province Betica and became the major cultural center. Great philosophers Seneka and Lukian were born there.
In 711 moors conquered Cordoba. In 756 Abd-ar-Rachman established Cordobian Caliphate. The blossoming of Cordoba began at that time.

GARDENS OF EL ALCAZAR

by LoriPori

Perhaps the most wonderful part of the El Alcazar is its fabulous GARDENS. We walked through the many paths leading in and out of ponds, waterfalls and fountains. There was one row of meticulously trimmed trees which looked so impressive to me. Also amongst the gardens was a monument with three figures of Queen Isabella, her husband Ferdinand and Christopher Columbus as it was here at the Alcazar that Isabella commissioned Columbus to seek the New World.

Flamenco dancing, a way of life

by Martin_S.

Flamenco is the typical dance of Andalusia, the southern parts of Spain. But today in Cordoba, as in all of Spain, the national dance is Flamenco, not only a dance, but a Spanish art form. We went for a show at the Caredenal Tablao Flamenco, in the old town of Cordoba. We have no way to guage if this was a professional or "good" show, but what is for certain is that as an introduction to Flamenco we enjoyed it immensely. I recommend that any visit to Spain be accompanied by a Flamenco show.
I found an excellent explantion of WHAT, WHERE and HOW Flamenco came to be at -

Museo Arqueologico

by davidcross

Unlike my other two 'off the beaten path' tips, this is not the first write-up but it certainly seems to belong here as most of the Cordoba visitors do not mention it an I did not go on my first three visits.
This is a museum which has had luck and made use of it. It ca hardly be normal to be setting up a museum of archaeology and find that you are actually on hte site of a Roman villa with your own built-in remains. This was the luck.
Thus they are able to show some things in situ but it is not only the Roman remains that are good. The prehistoric remains are excellent and the musk deer sculpture from Menina Azahara must be practically unique.
It is free with an EC passport but it only costs €1.50 anyway and is worth far more.

El Caballo Rojo

by ghawener about El Caballo Rojo

El Caballo Rojo

Within walking distance of the Mezquita in the old town, this restaurant is the most popular in Andalusia, and except for La Almudaina , it remains the best in Córdoba. The place has a noise level no other restaurant here matches, but the skilled waiters seem to cope with all demands. Stop in the restaurant's popular bar for a pre-dinner drink, then take the iron-railed stairs to the upper dining room, where a typical meal might include gazpacho, a main dish of chicken, then ice cream and sangria. (The ice cream, incidentally, is likely to be homemade pistachio.) Try a variation on the usual gazpacho--almond-flavored broth with apple pieces. In addition to Andalusian dishes, the chef offers both Sephardic and Mozarabic specialties, an example of the latter being monkfish prepared with pine nuts, currants, carrots, and cream. Real aficionados come here for the rabo de toro (stew made with the tail of an ox or a bull). The cookery is robust and flavorsome.
