Andalucía Spain Adventure

Post 2 – Córdoba, we visited La Mezquita, an enormous mosque dating back to 784 when the Moors were in control of Andalucía.  When the Moors were pushed out, it was converted to a Catholic church in 1236.  Since then, mass has been held every day. It was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1984.

The Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba is one of the most exceptional monuments in the world, a testimony to the ancient alliance of art and faith.

Andalucía Spain Adventure

Post 1 – Seville, a city rich in history, architectural wonders, great food and wine, cultural experiences.  We wandered around through the historic district photographing day and night.  The narrow cobblestone streets were alive with tapas bars – so nice to grab a light meal and glass of wine while walking around.  Flamenco dancers were a fun explore of shutter speeds – capturing faces and blurring the rest.
