Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba, Andalusia,Spain

The Mosque-cathedral of Córdoba ( Spanish :
Mezquita–catedral de Córdoba ), known as the
Mosque of Córdoba ( Spanish : Mezquita de
Córdoba ), [2] whose ecclesiastical name is the
Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption
( Spanish : Catedral de Nuestra Señora de la
Asunción ), [3] is the Catholic Christian cathedral
of the Diocese of Córdoba dedicated to the
Assumption of the Virgin Mary and located in the
Spanish region of Andalusia. [4] It originally was a
Catholic Christian church built by the Visigoths,
[5][6] although it was later converted to an
Islamic mosque in the Middle Ages ; [5] after the
Reconquista, it was made a Catholic Christian
church once again. [5][6] The cathedral is
regarded as one of the most accomplished
monuments of Moorish architecture. Since the
early 2000s, Spanish Muslims have lobbied the
Roman Catholic Church
to allow them to pray in the cathedral. [7][8] This
Muslim campaign has been rejected on multiple
occasions, both by the church authorities in
Spain and by the Vatican . [7][9
