Mezquita Cathedral, Córdoba, Spain – Mosquée Cathédrale, Cordoue, Espagne

The Mezquita (Spanish for "Mosque") of Cordoba, Spain is a beautiful and fascinating building that symbolizes the many religious changes Cordoba has undergone over the centuries. Today, the Mezquita is the cathedral of Cordoba (officially the Cathedral of St. Mary of the Assumption), but the vast majority of its art and architecture owes its origin to the Islamic architects who built it as a mosque in the 8th century.
