If you are traveling through Córdoba and want to take advantage the most of your trip without spending a
lot of money, our city makes it easy for you having a wide variety of totally free museums and
monuments. Some of them are always totally free and others on specific days and times. In this article I
will tell you about the most important and essential for your low cost pocket:
You are in luck, because the most important and symbolic monument in Córdoba can cost you absolutely
nothing, yes, but being quite early risers. Every day from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m., the Church council lets
you visit the mosque-cathedral for free during one hour. A World Heritage monument because it is
unique, since we are talking about the third largest mosque in the world and also with a cathedral ... right
in the middle!
If you want to expand your visit more than an hour because it will seem very little time, it would be
necessary to buy the ticket later. The general ticket price is 11 euros (14 euros with audio guide) and with
discounts for students, the unemployed and old people.
