WW: The Amazing Mezquita, Cordoba, Spain

A little #throwback trip to the amazing Mezquita, Cordoba, Spain

Our 9-day-turn-to-12-day in Spain surely brought a lot of fond memories, unforgettable experiences and photos. Here are some of them, took around 7 years ago during one of our road trips in Europe.

I know I should come back with more stories from those trips, because the historical background of all these amazing places are astonishing indeed!
And our trip to see the trace of Islam in Europe was so rewarding.
Not only we witnessed the grandeur Islamic architecture in this continent, but also read and know more about the history of Islam and how devotion can be amazingly showcased in various forms. 

Here are some examples of those beautiful architectures, the amazing Mezquita (or mosque, in English and masjid in bahasa Indonesia), Cordoba, Spain
