ancient-serpent: Arches at the Mezquita A church built on the site of an ancient mosque, a mosque then built on top of the demolished church, additions then made to the preserved mosque that functions as a present day church - thats the Mezquita. Its a striking example of two religions acknowledged under the same roof - islam and christianity. Note the arch in the foreground contrast with the distinctly muslim ones behind.
