The Torre del Oro «Tower of Gold» is a dodecagonal military watchtower in Seville built in 1220 by the Almohad dynasty in order to control access to Seville via the Guadalquivir river. With 36 meters in height, the tower served as a prison during the Middle Ages. Its name comes from the golden shine it projected on the river, due to its building materials, a mixture of mortar, lime and pressed hay •🔱•
Real Alcázar de Sevilla
The Real Alcázar in Seville is a magnificent complex of patios and halls in different architectural styles, from Mudéjar to Gothic. The heart of the complex is the Palace of King Pedro I, who constructed his royal residence in 1364 at the site of a Moorish palace. It has contributions from all periods, although Mudejar and Renaissance styles are predominant. The Alcazar is divided into sections dating from a succession of eras: Moorish (11th-12th century), Gothic (13th century), Mudejar (14th century), and Renaissance (15th-16th century). The declaration of World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1987 acknowledged the survival of cultures and civilizations as a harmonic whole where all of the elements are balanced •🔶•
You are an artist designing at every step the mosaic of your life •🔆•
The gardens of the Real Alcázar Palace make up one of the great palace sites of the Spanish crown, and possibly the oldest. They are the most original representation of a truly Hispanic style, the Mudejar, a Muslim artistic expression adapted to the Christian world. From their Moorish origins, they underwent continual transformations, especially during the Renaissance period and the reign of Philip III. All the palaces of Al Andalus had garden orchards with fruit trees, horticultural produce and a wide variety of fragrant flowers. The garden-orchards not only supplied food for the palace residents but had the aesthetic function of bringing pleasure. Water was ever present in the form of irrigation channels, runnels, jets, ponds and pools •🌴•
Plaza de España
Plaza de España, was built in 1928 for the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929. It is a landmark example of the Renaissance Revival style in Spanish architecture •❤️•
