In the 10th Century, Cordoba was the western capital of the Islamic empire, and was the equal of Bagdhad
in wealth, power, and sophistication. The original mosque was built between 785 and 787, and evolved over time.
In the 16th Century, after the reconquest of Cordoba by the Spanish Christians, a cathedral was built in the heart of the mosque.
