Mezquita de Cordoba history is typical for this region of Spain, Andalusia, – many centuries ago the ancient Roman temple located in this place, after – the Visigoths church and in 785 the great mosque – Mezquita appeared in here. It became the second in significance mosque in the whole world, and the hegira to Cordoba has equated to the hajj to Mecca, canonical for every Muslim.
And after that the Christian church was constructed or, to be more exact, built-in right inside the mosque.
Of course Mezquita-Catedral de Córdoba became on of “must see” points of our to-go list. Córdoba had even been emphasized over Sevilla per overnight stays. Arguments? The greater amount of sightseeing.
