The Mezquita in Cordoba is a former mosque with a tiny cathedral inside its massive walls.  It has 856 columns of jasper, onyx, marble, and granite.  These pictures also cannot fully portray the massiveness of its structure or its simple beauty.  These Moorish sites are a welcome, calm respite from the busyness and decoration of the many Catholic churches.
