When Moorish Meets Renaissance

Detail from the Mezquita, the Great Mosque of Cordoba, which combines portions of a Moorish mosque and a Ren, Cordoba, Spain

Detail from the interior of the Mezquita, the Great Mosque of Cordoba. Originally a Moorish mosque begun in AD 711,  when  Córdoba returned to Christian rule in 1236 during the Reconquista, the mosque was converted to a Roman Catholic church. In the 16th century, a Renaissance cathedral nave was built in the middle of the mosque.
