About the Cordoba mosque:
A UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1984 and a unique jewel in the world and not only in Spain.
The history of this incredible place dates back to the 8th century, since that time there were many changes and extensions, there are even some controversial studies that cast doubt on the origin of the first construction.
In all cases, all historians agree that the Mosque is the work of the Muslims who ruled this territory for 8 centuries (711 and 1492).
Its forest of columns (856) that maintains arches (365) gives it a unique appearance worldwide, a design that several nations tried to replicate, but not with the beauty that characterizes the Great Mosque.
Great Mosque has a large number of doors that differ depending on the use that is given to each one; since they are ceremonial doors, for example: the Deanes, Las Palmas, del Perdón, Santa Catalina and much more.
It should also be noted that, inside, several members of the performs are buried; Fernando IV of Castile (1285-1312), Alfonso XI of Castile (1311-1350), Enrique of Castile (1378-1404) among others.
After the Christian kings expelled the Muslims from Spain; the Great Mosque became a Cathedral that is now known as the Cathedral of the Assumption of Our Lady.
