Photographer's Note

Another glimpse of the courtyard of Cordoba Cathedral in Andalusia, Southern Spain.

The Mosque–Cathedral of Córdoba, also known as the Great Mosque of Córdoba and the Mezquita,whose ecclesiastical name is the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption is the Catholic cathedral of the Diocese of Córdoba dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin Mary. The structure is regarded as one of the most accomplished monuments of Moorish architecture.

According to a traditional account, a small temple of Christian Visigoth origin, the Catholic Basilica of Saint Vincent of Lérins, originally stood on the site. In 784 Abd al-Rahman I ordered construction of the Great Mosque, which was considerably expanded by later Muslim rulers.
