Jerusalemchurch, Bruges, Belgium
History cathedral

The Jerusalemchurch is a small 15th century church in Bruges, Belgium. It's a remarkable building, based on the groundplan of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. The church was build by members of the Adornes family, an originally Italian family which had settled and become of note in Bruges. The brothers Jacob and Pieter Adornes had been to Jerusalem on a pilgrimage, which likely inspired the style of the church.

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.
