    Good one Nicola ! Your scan is much better ! I have a bad scanner and had no digital camera when I took that picture. Anyway, this place is really good for pictures ;-)

    Thomas, I was there some years ago in May. There was not too much people in Andalusia and it was good like that ;-) In the Mosque, there was some people but I tried to avoid them as they would have been blurred ;-)

    You're right Fritz. This place was a Mosque made by the Moors in Andalusia. When Cordoba has been reconquered by Christians, they wanted to destroy it in order to put a cathedral instead. Hopefully the king decided not to destroy it but to build the cathedral in the middle of the mosque. It’s why it’s known as the Cordoba Mosque/Cathedral and this should be unique in the world. I should have some pictures showing both parts at the same time, but the best is to go there by your own ... ;-)
    We can also add that (maybe thanks to this) Cordoba is also known as a place where Muslins, Jews and Christians live in peace since centuries.

    Nice church with an arabic touch.
    I like most the cathedral of Pisa.
