Al Cazar

Toured La Giralda yesterday, and Real Alcazar today, among other things. Such incredible stuff. The Alcazar especially. The whole Mudejar aesthetic is fascinating to me. It blows away the myth that Islamic and Christian ideas have always been at odds with each other. As these palaces show: the height of the era was a cooperative vision, where they coexisted in the art and the culture.

We fly back home tomorrow. It has all gone so fast. A great trip! And a whole memory stick of pics. Maybe I will post some.
