During this time, Cordoba was the largest and themost wealthy cities of Europe. In fact, the making of the mosque addedmore to its majestic beauty.The place was initially built as a Church, however, when the Muslimruler took over the place, they started using it as a mosque andextended it till it became the second largest mosque in the entireworld. The Mezquita is said to be the most proficient monument of theCordoba. Once the Spanish took back the site from the Muslims, theyonce again converted the place from a mosque to a church.
