The Mezuita, Spanish for Mosque, of Cordoba is a building that shows the many religious changes Cordoba and for that matter Spain has undergone over the centuries. The Mezquita is now the Cathedral of Cordoba and officially known as the Cathedral of St. Mary of the Assumption, but a majority of the art and architecture is the work of Islamic architects, who built the mosque in the 8th century.  It is quite amazing to walk around the UNESCO world heritage site, and see the different architectural and religious features standing side-by-side in harmony.

    1. hi, I just found your comment on this image! I wanted to show the two cultures/religions standing side by side. Reading the history of Spain as we travel through the country has been really interesting!
