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.
