The famous arches of the Mezquita Cathedral in Cordoba in black-and-white by Ron Poot

Ron Poot Profile picture Right in the historic center of Cordoba stands the Mezquita. It is an impressive cathedral and former mosque that has been in use since the eighth century.

A Visigothic church stood on this site until the eighth century. The population then was Christian. After the Moors conquered southern Spain during that period, the church was demolished. The Moors built a mosque there. Among other things, they used 780 marble columns from nearby Roman villas. To make the mosque high enough, a double arch was placed on the columns.

Starting in 1236, the area became Christian again and the Moors were expelled. The diocese converted the mosque into a cathedral. Of the 1,200 columns, 400 were removed. Much of the characteristic columns have fortunately been preserved.

The result is a special combination of Christian and Moorish culture. Walking through the mosque/cathedral you are confronted with the cultures present. It is an experience to walk in the twilight of the red and white arches and taste the ancient Moorish atmosphere. Then suddenly you find yourself in the middle of a huge tall and bright cathedral. A contradictory and at the same time fascinating combination.

In the black-and-white version, the repetition of shapes and patterns perhaps comes out best.
