THE CORDOBA MOSQUE: SPAIN

 

The first Muslims to arrive in Cordoba shared the San Vincent Visigoth church with their Christian neighbours. This quickly proved to be insufficient to their needs and Abd ar-Rahman I (758-788) purchased the Christian part of the site. The church was razed around the year 780 and the construction of a mosque began.
