The Mosque of Cordoba ( World Heritage Site since 1984) is the most important monument of the Islamic West and one of the most amazing in the world. In its history the complete evolution of the Umayyad style is summarized in Spain , in addition to the Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque styles of Christian construction . The site now occupied by our Mosque , Cathedral seems to have been from old , dedicated to the worship of different deities. Under Visigoths built on this same site the Basilica of San Vicente, on which he built, after the payment of part of the site, the original mosque . This basilica , a rectangular plan was shared by Christians and Muslims for a while. When the Muslim population grew, the basilica was fully acquired by Abderrahman I and destroyed for the final construction of the first mosque Alhama or main city . At present some of the Visigoth building construction elements are integrated into the first section of Abderrahman I. The Great Mosque has two distinct areas, the arcaded courtyard or sahn , where the minaret rises (in the Renaissance tower ) , solely from Abd al- Rahman III , and the prayer hall or haram. The interior is arranged on a concert bicolor columns and arches high chromatic effect. There are five areas in which the exhibition is divided , each corresponding to different extensions undertaken.
