Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba, Cordoba, Spain
The Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba in Spain has a history as fascinating as its exquisite decoration, with its horseshoe arches and pillars.

Today many tourists come to wander among the 856 pillars of jasper, onyx, marble, and granite. Most famous of all are the alternating red and white arches which were inspired by those in the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem.
