THIS IS CÓRDOBA-3

This doorway is clearly in an old building. The arch resembles the arches of the famous Mesquite in the city. On the walls one can see carved script. Note that the decorative patterns tend to be simple and abstract. There is no sculpture and no human images--Islamic art tends to be geometric, even when it is elaborate. This geometric patterning can be seen in the street art made of rocks posted earlier.
