  • Only by its history, it is worth to see it. It is the only original mosque that was not built on earlier remains, as explained to us, even though he had then added. Perfectly restored and that gives you an idea of how it was a mosque of 900 years ago. Square inside composed by horseshoe arches that support nine vaults supported by fine and beautiful columns. Highlights the Qubba (domed Vault) central, as well as the Mudejar apse added in the 12TH century and thus adapt to the Christian cult. Transforming it into the Church of the Cristo de la Luz presided over by a single crucified, accompanied by fine and beautiful columns. Hospital de Tavera is seen next to a door. It is located next to a very well preserved Roman road, and with a beautiful garden. It is worth knowing the legend that gives it its name. Under the apse have been discovered a few interesting structures carved into the rock, presumably of the Paleo-Christian Roman stage (s. 3RD ad), which have been left on the eye with a glass enclosure, according to the Christian significance of this apse of s. XII. To appreciate its value, it is of course highly recommended visit is guided, as in our case. In my opinion, abroad loses its harmony, have been made the building of reception of visitors, with materials not in accordance with the of the mosque.
