  Cordoba - Mosque walls and gates
by Kuznetsov_Sergey

Unlike a Christian temple which is perceived by believers as a model of the world, a mosque is first of all a space for a pray. Initially mosque in Cordoba represented simply the big fenced platform with a palm canopy as a protection against heat. Even now external walls of a mosque do not make the big impression. The long wall with several entrances lasts along Calle Torrijos. Entrances are decorated approximately equally and it is impossible to allocate among them the main gate.

Address: Calle Cardenal Herrero, 1

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
