The Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba is the most important monument of all the Islamic West and one of the most amazing in the world. Its history summarizes the complete evolution of the Umayyad style in Spain, as well as the Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque styles of Christian construction.
The place that today occupies our Mosque-Cathedral seems to have been, since ancient times, dedicated to the worship of different deities. Under Visigothic domination the basilica of San Vicente was built on this same site, on which the primitive mosque was built after payment of part of the site. This basilica, rectangular in shape, was shared by Christians and Muslims for a time. When the Muslim population was growing, the basilica was acquired entirely by Abderraman I and destroyed for the definitive construction of the first Alhama Mosque or main city. Currently, some construction elements of the Visigoth building are integrated into the first section of Abderraman I.
