Cordoba - Through the arches.jpg - FOR SALE- The Cathedral and former Great Mosque of Córdoba, in ecclesiastical terms the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption, and known by the inhabitants of Córdoba as the Mosque–Cathedral, is today a World Heritage Site and the cathedral of the Diocese of Córdoba. It is located in the Andalusian city of Córdoba, Spain. The building is most notable for its arcaded hypostyle hall, with 856 columns of jasper, onyx, marble, and granite. These were made from pieces of the Roman temple which had occupied the site previously, as well as other destroyed Roman buildings, such as the Mérida amphitheatre. The double arches were a new introduction to architecture, permitting higher ceilings than would otherwise be possible with relatively low columns.
