The Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba is a Moorish mosque, built between 784-987, that was converted into a Catholic cathedral in 1236. A beautiful and unique building, it is considered to be one of the greatest examples of Moorish architecture. It features the courtyard, horseshoe arches, and crenelated arches that are typical of Moorish architecture.
The Puerta del Perdón is the main entrance for the cathedral. It was built in the 14th century in Mudéjar style. (Mudéjar architecture is built by Spanish Catholics influenced by Muslim architecture.) Note the paintings of angels under Moorish-style crenelated arches.( Enter the Mosque?
