Full description
Begin your tour in the Courtyard of the Orange Trees at the entrance of the bell tower of the Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba. Enter the Mosque-Cathedral and be amazed by the blending of the two distinct religious cultures of Islam and Christianity. As you walk through the building learn about its long history, how it was built between the 8th and 16th-centuries, and its past as first a mosque and now a cathedral. Spend approximately an hour and 15 minutes in the Mosque-Cathedral. Afterward, head to the Alcazar of the Catholic Monarchs, skip the line to enter and spend about an hour here. Discover how the old palace was built in the 14th-century to conquer the last Arabic Kingdom of the Iberian Peninsula. Your tour concludes in the marvelous gardens of the Alcazar where you can take as many pictures as you want.

El sitio muy bonito, la Mezquita enorme , el Alcazar y sus jardines preciosos. Es la primera vez que es una visita guiada , siempre hemos ido por nuestra cuenta, es difícil un poco estar pendiente de las explicaciones de la historia del sitio y a la vez hacer fotos con los mejores sitios . El guía seguramente haya explicado muy bien la historia , pero yo no me quedaba con los datos mientras hacía fotos . Es mi experiencia. El trato es agradable , llegamos un poco tarde y se nos esperó otra persona de la agencia para juntarnos luego con el grupo.

Emilio muy atento y buen organizador. Chema y Pilar lo más, derrochan sabiduría y el frescor cítrico de la ciudad. Sin duda si repito pido por ello. Las 9 nueve chicas.
