15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Mezquita de Córdoba, Spain
In 2015, I took a six-month sabbatical to travel through Europe, learn French, and study art and history. I stayed in 12 countries as far ranging as Ireland, Finland, Greece, and Spain. I was intrigued by the Moorish history of Spain, and was awed by the Mezquita de Córdoba, Spain, a mosque and church dating to the year 784. It's patterned archways, gilded alters, and semi-precious stone columns enhance the uniqueness of this special place.
