My final stop on my train tour through Andalusian Spain and another beautiful Moorish built eddifice. The Mezquita, a former Mosque, turned into a church after the Spanish kings retook the city.

I stayed at a home that was 1,000 years old. It had been modified and modernized over the years, but was still amazing to see its little touches. I still get giddy at thinking about all that house has seen in 1,000 years!

The Roman bridge, as with much of Spain, the Roman Empire had conquered here 2,000 years ago, this bridge still stands from that time
