Cordoba is a city in southern Spain. It is located on the banks of the Guadalquivir River and is the capital of the province of Cordoba.

The mosque-cathedral of Cοrdoba, known as the Mezquita de Cordoba and ecclesiastically as the Cathedral of Our Lady of Ascension is a Catholic church of the Cordoba Archdiocese.

Mezquita is one of the most important buildings in Spain, unique for its Islamic architecture, and with the added peculiarity of having a Christian cathedral in its center.

The first shots are from a car, which crosses a narrow alley in Cordoba.

Arriving at the tree-lined exterior of Mezquita, with a vertical view of the camera we see the minarets surrounding a towering bell tower, some shots from the exterior masonry of the temple and an arched entrance.

Outside the temple, a barrel piano player, people and cars, buses and a shot from the entrance of the temple.

The film ends with an everyday incident, as the work of some men with a ladder prevents the filmmaker's car from passing.

Mezquita was registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984 and the site has since been expanded to include much of Cordoba's historic center.
