The Roman bridge (right), built 1st century BC over the Guadalquivir river, and (centre), the Puerta del Puente, or Gate of the Bridge, built in Renaissance style with Doric columns and classical entablature by Hernan Ruiz III in 1572 to link the city to the Roman bridge, and behind (left), the Cathedral-Great Mosque of Cordoba, in Cordoba, Andalusia, Southern Spain. The first church built here by the Visigoths in the 7th century was split in half by the Moors, becoming half church, half mosque. In 784, the Great Mosque of Cordoba was built in its place, but in 1236 it was converted into a catholic church, with a Renaissance cathedral nave built in the 16th century. The historic centre of Cordoba is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Picture by Manuel Cohen
