【写在前面】“我们常说激情是短暂的,爱的激情的确短暂,对于生活的激情却可以很长。”

#11 科尔多瓦大清真寺

Certainly there are nagging undertones of regret to the greatest of the Islamic monuments of Spain, the Great Mosque of Cordoba, for now that its mihrab has been demoted to be a mere curiosity, its courtyard taken in hand by the canons, its huge martial expanse blocked by the Christian altars in the middle, its old brotherly arcades walled in, its ablution fountains converted to ornamental pools, and its wandering sages banished for ever from the orange trees.
