The exterior of the Mesquite

The Mesquite is a triumph of Moorish architecture

Originally a church the Moors beganing building the Mesquite in 784 AD

As can be seen in these views of the outside, the interior is large with many entrances

This view is from inside the courtyard and shows the bell tower which
was added after the reconquest by the Spainish in 1236

This view, also from the courtyard shows the Cathedral also built by the Spainish

The view from across the river looking back to the old town of Cordoba
