Mosque–Cathedral of Córdoba, Spain

The main reason for a tourist to travel to Córdoba is to see the massive Mosque-Cathedral.

Locally, it’s called the Mezquita.

Under the Moors, Córdoba became the most important city in Europe, a centre of education and learning.

The feeling inside for me is mostly Islamic. Yet all around Christian elements were installed and built starting 1523 after the Moors were expelled.

It’s a nice balance. Did I mention it’s HUGE.

856 columns. And Christians had many more removed.

    Mind blowing. Did you take the overhead shot with your drone? If so, what are the regulations in operating a drone in an area like Cordoba?
    Cheers,
