A Word A Week Challenge: Arches – Cathedrals, once Mosques

Interpretation of Arches

One of the photo challenges of this week are about Arches. I will present them in more than on post.  
The first post is about 2 Cathedrals, which have Muslim heritage – the Cathedral of Seville, Andalusia and the Hagia Sofia, Istanbul. Have a look at the colorful windows with arches in their design, which you may have to look closer out for.
