Très joli !
Tu devrais mettre tes photos dans le portfolio pour qu'on puisse toutes les voir.

@Martine: Merci beaucoup, Martine, mais je ne trouve pas comment faire pour mettre les photos dans le portfolio.

Shirin Moosavi from Tehran, Iran

Lovely shot Paco!

This is from Qur'an. I googled the English translation of this Verse:

In the name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful
Allah (God) is he, than whom there is no other god;- the sovereign, the holy one, the source of peace (and perfection), the guardian of faith, the preserver of safety, the exalted in might, the irresistible, the supreme: glory to allah! (high is he) above the partners they attribute to him.

@Shirin Moosavi: Thanks very much, Shirin, for the comment and for the translation. I didn't know the meaning of the writing here.
All the Mosque in Córdoba is full of verses like these, as in the Alhambra in Granada.

Shirin Moosavi from Tehran, Iran

Actually I can't translate Arabic into any language!
In Iran, Qur'an comes with various translations including Farsi, English, etc.

Benkirane from Fès, Morocco

Un cadrage impécable de ce fragment de porte de la célèbre mosquée.
En général, les inscriptions et les arabesques qui ornent les façades et les intérieurs des lieux de culte sont toutes de nature religieuse et sont tirées du Coran. Indépendamment du message qu'elles contiennent, c'est surtout le travail extraordinaire sur le stuc par l'artisan qui m'interpelle...
Bon dimanche lumineux!

Mihrab : pour la décoration de cette niche octogonale on fit appel à des artistes byzantins qui réalisèrent les merveilleuses mosaïques qui décorent son arc d'entrée et la superbe coupole qui le précède. Impeccable cadrage Paco !
