The Mezquita-Catedral (Mosque-Cathedral) is arguably the must-visit building in Córdoba. Built between the 8th and 10th centuries, this lustrous architecture was once the home of the Muslims, Jews and Christians. Approaching the Puerta de Las Palmas, or Door of the Palms, 850 marble and granite columns make way for the mosque. Make sure to see the Mezquita‘s beautiful jewel, the mihrab, on the opposite room from the entrance. The mosque opens from 8:30 am to 7 pm Monday to Saturday, or from 8:30 am to 11:30 am, and 3 pm to 7 pm on Sunday. Tickets cost 8 euros. However, you can get free entrance if you visit the mosque between 8:30 am and 9:30 am.
