Córdoba

A magnificent Jewel in Andalucia’s crown, Cordoba boasts a wealth of history, art and architecture - including the world’s largest mosque.

It also features the stunning Mezquita - Mezquita-Catedral de Córdoba, whose ecclesiastical name is the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption, or in Spanish Catedral de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción. Andalucia is famous for its Moorish architecture, but even when compared to these high standards Mezquita is considered to be one of the most accomplished.
