world pictures Spain: Cordoba: the Mesquita

The Gate of St. Steven, the best preserved of the wall's 19 gates.  Parts of it date from the reign of Abdel Rahman I, the first emir of Andalucia; an inscription on the tympanum says that the horseshoe arch was finished about a century later, in 855. Note the arabesques carved into the alternating sandstone voussoirs.
