  10. A very beautiful building. I can see why they still have the key - it would be difficult to lose something as big as that!

  23. This mosque has beautiful decoration and it's wonderful that the building is still active as well as preserved. I have seen inside two mosques in Spain, but they were within partially ruined alcazars that are now touristy places. They both still had a serene atmosphere though.
