This site in the Andalucían city of Cordoba was home to a Roman temple, then a Visigoth church, then a Moorish mosque and lastly a cathedral. These transitions are a common story in Andalucía as rivals battled it out over the centuries.

Today it is known locally as the Mezquita-Catedral de Cordoba. Much of the mosque remains. This is the courtyard where Muslim worshipers would have performed their ablutions before entering.
