The Great Mosque of Cordoba

The Great Mosque of Cordoba is currently a Roman Catholic Cathedral and a former Mosque. When the Christians took over this area of Spain they built a cathedral in the middle of the Mosque. It's really weird! The styles of these two buildings are SO incredibly different, but they're both in one building!

A very old clock from 1747

Just a few of the 990 columns in the Mosque.

Look at the imperfections in this, since it was all made by hand, and not very well planned out. They just had to add some random stuff on the bottom right, because the two circles didn't fill the space.

Beautiful doors!
