Yes, we’re back! And very glad to be here!
|A rather nice modern building in Sevilla|
And since we’ve been here before –we spent three months around the Christmas holidays here in 2016 – it’s all familiar. We know our way around. No mean feat, that, since the roads are short, narrow, and winding. A real maze. (I didn’t want to go out alone for the first month we were here for fear I’d never find my way back!) But now we wander the cobbled streets in confidence, admiring the buildings (and discovering some new, really exquisite ones).
|Originally the minaret for the mosque, now a bell tower for the cathedral.|
|View from the tower. Note the bells...|
|The Cordoba cathedral, plunked down in the middle of (what was) the Cordoba mosque.|
|The candy cane forest! Astonishing, really.|
|Not even this panorama can give a hint.|
|Transitioning from mosque to cathedral|
|The Christian cathedral built entirely within the (former) mosque.|
|View of the minaret -- bell tower from outside the walls|
|2nd Century Roman bridge (used as Long Bridge to Volantis in Game of Thrones)|
|View of the city walls and a very nice fountain!|
|Street art, outside an auto repair shop (!)|
