The tiling is remarkable in Sevilla as in all of Andalusia that I have visted…a sure sign of Moorish influence and sometimes a bit of ancient history. The entries and the lovely courtyards within the houses are memorable.
those living in the ancient buildings…evidenced by the red motorcycle in the lower part of the photo.
But riddle me this? Why are holy people often standing on someone’s head? It just doesn’t seem right to me. In church after church and Catedrál after Catedrál we saw statues and paintings of holy figures on top of groups of heads. Does this mean that the people support them or that they are higher than anybody?????
Iberian Ham – can I say it again? It is everywhere: in the shops, in the restaurants, in the tapas
Bulls and Flamenco dancers play a huge part here as they seem to in all of Spain. I spotted the same flamenco doll in a shop window that I bought for my granddaughters in 1996 when I visited Spain the last time.
So we are leaving this city that is a mix of winding cobblestone streets, an overriding ambience of history and romance in juxtaposition to modern boulevards and spacious plazas. Goodbye Sevilla!
