Photo: Architectural Details Mesquita Cordoba

These architectural details are found on the decorated arches of the Parish of the Tabernacle at the Mezquita, which is the Cathedral-Mosque in the City of Cordoba. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site located in Audalusia, Spain.

These architectural details are so intricate and complex that it is hard to take them all in with just one glance. These decorated arches are part of the design of the Parish of the Tabernacle at the Mezquita, which is a Cathedral-Mosque located in Cordoba. This is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Andalusia, Spain. The delicate detail that is a part of this architecture is still a marvel for every visitor that comes to see the Mezquita.

The architecture of the Mezquita is in the Moorish style, which is known for its arches and columns that add detail and definition to both the inside and outside of the building. This design is unique because it contains both Cathedral and Mosque design elements, as a Church used to stand on the site before it was converted into a Mosque. ... continue below the picture...

... A Roman Temple also stood on the site previously and some pieces were incorporated into the new architecture.

The mosque has undergone further changes over the years, contributing to the unique design, and as the City of Cordoba was prone to attacks this building has also been changed to reflect that. Each conquering group added their own design element to the Mezquita. It is truly an interesting place to visit, and the detail dedicated to the inside especially is awe-inspiring. As can be seen in this detailed view, every inch of the wall is covered with paintings and images and tell a story themselves.
