The Mezquita incorporates Byzantine, Asian, Roman, and Moorish elements into its architecture. The columns, arches, and decorations marvel the viewer. The mosque has been added on to and with each addition a different look and feel is evident. Cordoba was first the capital of Roman Spain, then of Moorish Spain, so the town features some of the most important historical monuments found in Spain. The old quarter of the town with its narrow streets, unique buildings, whitewashed homes, and shops gives the visitor a feel of how people of old lived and worked. A charming town with lots to see and do. Give yourself plenty of time to enjoy the mosque and the town.
