The Mezquita was consecrated as a Christian Cathedral in the same year that Cordoba was re-conquered (1236). Alfonso X built the Villaviciosa Chapel with stunning multi lobed arches. The Capilla Real (Royal Chapel)was also built as a pantheon for Christian Kings.The site on which the Mezquita stands has long been a sacred space – it was first host to a Roman temple, then a Visigoth cathedral church,, then a mosque,Finally, a Baroque cathedral was added inside the mosque.
