    It was a Mosque build at the time of the Umayyds, a Muslim Caliphate, in the Andalus (Now Spain). It was the 2nd largest Mosque in the world.
    When the Christain spaniards recoqnuered Spain, they converted the Mosque into a Roman Catholic cathedral (Church).

    Anything else you want to know?

    I came into the Indian subcontinent, and built two cities which are today World Heritage sires: Mohan jo doro and Harappa..

    I big amount of them did...Now if you are saying that Egypt has been conquered and ruled by different people a lot of time, then, thankfully, we were luckier there
