La Mesquita

La Mesquita

This is a village in the Sierra de Aracena. It snuggles down below a hill which contains its old fortified mosque, a five aisled building. Although it is not ornate like the Great Mosque in Cordoba it is complete, although the tower is unsafe. The building was previously a Visigothic Christian church and some of the base remains are of Roman origin.

Immediately adjacent to the mosque is a 19th century bullring, which is still used once a year,

The village may well be the nicest place to stay in the Sierra and there are a number of waymarked walks available.
