📍Alcazar de los Reyes Cristianos, Cordoba, Spain 04012019
The Alcazar de los Reyes Cristianos also known as the Alcazar of Cordoba, is a medieval alcazar located near the Grand Mosque or Mezquita Cathedral of Cordoba. It was rebuild during Umayyad Dynasty and used by Abd ar-Rahman I as his palace. After Christian forces took over Cordoba, in 1328, Alfonso XI of Castile began building the present day structure. Alfonso’s structure retained only part of the Moorish ruins but the structure appears Islamic due to Alfonso’s use of the Mudejar style.
