Be prepared to witness some of the best Jewish, Arabic and Christian architecture in Spain. This city’s greatest glory was when it became the capital of the Moorish Kingdom of El-Andalus until the year 1236, when it was reconquered by the Christians. Upon this reconquest, the Christians were so impressed with the Mosque (one of the largest in the Islamic world), they decided to build the cathedral in the midst of its rows of arches and columns, creating a unique church-mosque that we see today. At night, we will see an equestrian show by the world famous Andalusian horses.
