The Mezquita and the Cathedral of Cordoba is an amazing structure. After being blown away by the scale and beauty of the Mosque, you discover a huge Christian Cathedral right in the middle

  1. Cathedral of Cordoba is amazing. To think of the tools they had or didn’t have in their time. Ceramic tiles Art in Colour

    & Shapes

  2. Ah you photographed the salted sardines in the round barrel! Did the same in Catalonia last Summer and have been doing sketches and little paintings on this amazingly decorative pattern of fish.Adorable!

  3. John, I never fulfilled a youthful dream I had to move to Spain to study Flamenco guitar. You’re tugging at my heart strings with these gorgeous photos. Is it OK if I live vicariously through your adventures here? As always, well done and beautiful!
