Photographer's Note

The belltower of the Mezquita Cathedral dates from 1589 AD. It replaced an earlier structure damaged in an earthquake. At 54 metres in height, it is the tallest structure in Cordoba. The previous structure replaced a Muslim minaret built to serve the Aljama Mosque during the Ottoman occupation of Spain and constructed in 944/945 AD.
