Salvemos la Mezquita de Córdoba · Por una Mezquita-Catedral de todos

The Catholic church in Spain has been exploiting to it's financial advantage the World Heritage Site of the Cordoba Mosque (Mezquita) for decades.

They now even pretend to turn this public site into church estate. They actually have already banned the term Mezquita (Mosque) to impose religious monopoly, while the Mezquita is actually one of the few great universal paradigms of harmony between cultures (main reason why it was declared World Heritage in the first place).

Public pressure is needed towards the government of Andalusia to keep this monument as public property instead of loosing it to private, christian dominion.

The architecture of the Cordoba Mosque tells the history of a fascinating era which is unique. The mosque was built from 780, on the site of the Visigothic church of St-Vincent, and successively extended by the addition of new naves until 987 when it had its current dimensions.


After the reconquest, with the newly regained power in Córdoba, the Christians built a Gothic cathedral in the heart of the mosque.




The Cordoba mosque is without doubt a masterpiece of Muslim art. First you will see the Orange Tree Courtyards with its fountains of the era and others in the Mudejar style and the Al-Mansour reservoir from the 10C.


Inside you will dive into a forest of columns and arches where shadow et light play. You will visit in particular the extension by Al-Hakam II. Admire the pure wonder that is the mihrab, the superb dome which comes before the three domes of the «maksourah».


Outside, notice the minaret by Abd-er-Rahman III which was surrounded by a Baroque tower towards the end of the 16C, the attractive Pardoners gate and, in the north wall the station that contains the Virgin with lanterns, which is a copy of a work by Julio Romero de Torres.
