Great Mosque of Córdoba

The Catedral de Córdoba, or Catedral de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción was formerly the Great Mosque of Córdoba, or the Mezquita. The site was converted by the Umayyad Moors after purchasing the building, from a Visigothic Christian church into a mosque. It is located in the Andalusian city of Córdoba, Spain. The Mezquita is regarded as perhaps the most accomplished monument of the Umayyad Caliphate of Córdoba. After the Spanish Reconquista, it once again became a Roman Catholic church, with a Gothic cathedral later inserted into the centre of the large Moorish building. Today the entire building is used to house the Cathedral of the diocese of Córdoba in Spain.

In sevilla there are many churches that support Arabic elements as the minaret or the court. Everything has finished being mixed by the Baroque and the Renaissance.

Absolutely gorgeous! Spain is full of so much history and works of art, no wonder it has more UNESCO sites then any other country.

The Aljafería Palace

The Aljafería Palace (Arabic:قصر الجعفرية Qasr Aljafariya, Spanish: Palacio de la Aljafería) is a fortified palace built during the second half of the 11th century in Zaragoza, Spain. It was the residence of the Banu Hud dynasty during the era of Abu Jaffar Al-Muqtadir and reflecting the splendor attained by the kingdom of the taifa of Zaragoza at the height of its grandeur. The palace currently contains the Cortes (regional parliament) of the autonomous community of Aragon.

The structure holds unique importance in that it is the only conserved testimony of a large building of Spanish Islamic architecture of the era of the Taifas (independent kingdoms).
