The double arch is another way in which the height of a
wall can be increased. Double arches are found in the 780s in Islamic
architecture, as in the Great Mosque at Cordoba, Spain.
Here, the arch is not used to span a large, unencumbered space, but
rather, as double arches, they link together a densely colonnaded interior

courtyard and allow for a greater circulation of air!!!
