Full description

Embark on a guided tour of Córdoba with skip-the-line entry to the great Mosque-Cathedral. Follow your guide through the historical Jewish Quarter and step inside the impressive Synagogue.

Meet your experienced guide outside the Mosque-Cathedral. 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.

Admire the Prayer Hall, the Mihrab, and the famous red and white arches, and take pictures as you go around. Your guide will tell you about the different expansions of the building, and all the hidden details of the architecture.

Next, join a walking tour around the historical Jewish Quarter, a must-do when in Córdoba. Start in Calleja de la Hoguera, where your guide will discuss the Jewish heritage of the area and its importance in the city's development.

Stroll around the El Zoco artisans market, the picturesque Plaza del Cardenal Salazar, and the narrow Calleja de la luna. See the souk, the Chapel of Saint Bartholomew, and the statue of one of the most important thinkers in the world: Maimónides.

Also, head inside the Synagogue, one of the best-preserved in Spain.

The tour was super entertaining and interesting. Our two guides were absolute professionals and told exciting stories and answered every question with pleasure. We had 2 guides because one did the tour of the Mosque-Cathedral and the other through the Jewish Quarter and into the synagogue. The combination was great because everyone was an expert in their field. I can highly recommend this tour

Our tour guide was very experienced & gave a very full explanation of the Mesquita, however at times it was a little too detailed in the archaeology & did sometimes lose us & others in the group. Overall it was good tour with a lot of history of the building which was very informative & interesting. Our tour guide for the Jewish Quarter was easy to understand & the tour was informative & interesting but extremely busy with long queues to view buildings. Both tours were a good introduction to Cordoba's history and well worth the experience if you have never visited before.
