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.

One thought on “Mosque–Cathedral of Córdoba, Spain”
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?
