The Mesquita (Mosque in Spanish), also known as the Great Mosque of Cordoba is a World UNESCO site one must visit for its beauty and interesting history.
I admire this sacred built more than its history. Wether it’s a cathedral within the mosque, or the mosque that houses the cathedral, it doesn’t really matter. Most importantly, it delivers a very important message to the world – religion, should have no boundaries.
One of the most famous architectural feats of the Mezquita is the large quantity of columns, adding up to a total of 856 (originally 1,293) columns made up of jasper, onyx, marble and granite. These columns were collected from other destroyed Roman buildings and preserved from the buildings original decor when it served as a Roman temple.
