Mosque Córdoba is the best example of Islamic architecture in the West. Combines the Umayyad style Spain as Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque styles of the Christian tradition , because of its long history and evolution over time. It was built in 784–786 on the site of a Christian church in the historic city center, near the Guadalquivir River and next to the Roman bridge by the Umayyad ruler Abd al-Rahman .
Over the years, the increase of the faithful and will monumentalizar all, the mosque was expanded significantly to reach its current configuration . The space of the mosque in Córdoba is 23,400 m2, was the second largest in the world after that of Mecca, until in 1588 the Blue Mosque in Istanbul exceeded.
