When we was touring in Spain about 10 years ago my wife and I visited
the cathedral in Cordoba. The cathedral itself was built in a part of
the mosque, and the rest of the mosque is still standing "as is." One
of the bell towers of the cathedral in Seville is put on top of the
minaret of the former mosque.
In the cathedrals and churches of Spain We also saw tons of gold and
silver statues and ornamentation made from treasure plundered from
the Spanish New World by devout Christians who brought the Gospel to
the pagan Indians.
On another note, in Cordoba our tour bus had to cross the
Guadalquivir River (an Arabic name) on the old bridge because the new
bridge was being repaired. The old bridge was built by Julius Caesar,
who was murdered in the year 44 B.C.E.
