Córdoba’s Grand Mosque and Moorish Society in Spain

While Granada was the last Moorish capital, the capital through the glory days of Muslim rule was Córdoba. And, towering over the former mosque, a bell tower makes it clear: This huge edifice now houses a place of Christian worship. In the 10th century, when a minaret stood where the bell tower stands today, Córdoba was arguably Europe's greatest city. Muslim Córdoba had hundreds of mosques, but most of them were destroyed. Rick: So this was a minaret first, and now it's a bell tower for that church.
