I spent a large week-end and Sevilla mid-November but dedicated one day to visit Cordoba. You have different buses everyday to go there and come back. It's a one hour drive roughly and you get quite close from the historical center.
This is the Mesquita of Cordoba, an Arabo-Andalus mosquee erected in 785 AD which was turned into a cathedral in the XVIth century. Inside, you will be amazed by the 850 red & white composite columns made of granit and marble. It does create very nice perspectives. Some of these columns were taken from Roman monuments if I understood well.

hello steven, difficult shot. I was there too. But, I could’t get any good picture out of it. Here you gave us a great perspective and good luminosity. the arcs looks magnificent and creates a beautiful pattern.. Very good job!

Impressive sight and very good POV and DOF. Interesting scene.

A nice pattern shot with good DOF throughout the shot,I do like having the one figure in order to give an idea of scale.I would though have cropped almost at the bottom of the columns because the area of floor really adds little to the shot.

very well composed, the arc i would think was hard to take a photo of as there were many but you composed this one very well, good lighting as well.
