Look Up at the Structure

When we were in Seville, Spain, we visited The Great Mosque in Córdoba.  The former Islamic Mosque structure was built by the Umayyad ruler ʿAbd ar-Raḥmān in 784–786. In the 13th century, it was converted into a Christian Cathedral. Its Moorish character was altered in the 16th century, with the interior of a central High Altar and Cruciform Choir. The designs of the Dome of The Mihrah, and the Hypostyle Hall are incredible.
