Tour Summary

Our Cordoba mosque tour takes you back in time, to reveal the customs, traditions and lifestyle of the “The City of the Three Religions” where Islam, Christianity and Judaism co-existed in harmony and peace.

You will visit the old Jewish quarter, enjoy dinner or tapas at a recommended restaurant, before an exquisite night-time visit to the Mezquita with a stunning display of sound and light effects which brings to life the sheer scale and glorious architecture of this unique building.

We take you to Cordoba in the evening, because once the sun starts to set, the secrets of these traditions are easier to appreciate as the city takes on a quieter and more intimate atmosphere.

Many thanks to Toma and Coe
A group of friends did a tour of Andalusia including Granada, Cordoba, Ronda and Seville. Highlights were the Alhambra and the Mezquita. The town of Ronda was breath-taking. We had excellent guides and stayed in beautiful, well-situated hotels. Manni Coe was very helpful and I highly recommend them.
