Córdoba. Mezquita-Catedral

The Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba is one of the most important and peculiar monuments of Spain and the West. It is a huge Arab Mosque, to which different alterations were made in Christian times, specially in the 16th century, when the Temple or Christian Cathedral was built, in a plateresque style. The Mosque of Cordoba, is not only the symbol of Al-Andalus, but also a principal and significant monument in all the Islamic West, and is one of the most amazing of the world. It is an artistic reflection of the power of one of the most important political states of the West in the 9th and 10th centuries: the Caliphate of Cordoba.

I wonder if one of these hotels is the one we stayed in when we visited Cordoba. Will have to go back and check my notes.
