Photographer's Note

This is the magnificent Mezquita in the southern Spanish town of Córdoba's. I have previously uploaded photos of both the internal and external details of the cathedral.

The Mezquita began life in the year 600 as a Christian church dedicated to St Vincent under the Visigoths. It later became a mediaeval Islamic mosque and was later converted to a Catholic cathedral when the Moors were ousted from rule. At one stage, the church was divided and both Muslims and Christians worshipped here. Now it is exclusively Christian, although many Muslims visit here to pay their respects. The cathedral is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen, combining the best of Moorish, Romanesque and Gothic architecture.
