La Mezquita de Cordoba / Andalucia, Spain

From Esteparia (Mosque Around the World Tag)

I was kind of excited to discover the resemblance of Spanish word of "mezquita" with the Turkish (Arabic) word of "mescit" when I turned over the card. Then, I remembered the history classes from high school and the Moor Occupation in Andalucia in the 8th century. Living in a 99% muslim country, I am so used to mosques and mosque cards but it is always interesting to receive a mosque card from a non-Turkish country, Spain in this case.
