On my over-ambitious, super cheap 2-week trip to Spain in 2011, I went out of my way to stop in Seville. In retrospect, I should have skipped it – but how was I to know I wouldn’t completely love it there?
I was all too eager to escape the hoards of study abroad students in town, so when a few girls from my hostel invited me to join them on a day trip to Cordoba, I readily agreed.
What’s in Cordoba, you ask? LA MEZQUITA, a glorious, glorious mosque:
This is one of those buildings where you could easily spend hours shuffling around, gazing at every intricate nook and cranny in amazement. Not that I did that or anything.
No but really, La Mezquita is stunning. The double-arched arcaded hall is unlike anything I’ve ever seen. If you ever find yourself in Southern Spain, get yourself to this UNESCO World Heritage site!
