The Gran Mezquita

Earlier in March, the students of IES Granada visited the city of Córdoba in order to see the Gran Mezquita, or Great Mosque, which is now a Cathedral. Having studied the Gran Mezquita in the Islamic Art and Architecture class, this visit was a thrill for me. It was wonderful to finally walk through beneath the famous red and white striped arches, and knowing the full history of the structure made it even more interesting to be there in person. I share a little bit about that history in this episode of the podcast.
