The Duomo & Leaning Tower of Pisa, Italy

Wonders of the World – Leaning Tower of Pisa   “The Leaning Tower of Pisa has to be in the top 100 iconic sights in the world. Even if the Tower did not lean the ensemble of buildings in the Duomo square would still be spectacular. The tilting the tower has caught everybody’s imagination and so powerful is its effect, that I am surprised that tilted buildings have not been built on purpose to attract tourists. The leaning Tower of Pisa remains one of my favourite places. At sunrise it is incredible to have the building to yourself and to be able to examine itRead More →

Patio de las Doncellas (Courtyard of the Maidens) an Italian Renaissance courtyard (1540-72) with Arabesque Mudéjar style plaster work, Alcazar of Seville, Seville, Spain

“The fact that the Iberian Peninsular, apart from the far north west, was ruled for over 700 years from 711 by Islamic rulers who called it Al-Andalus, is often glossed over by Christian historians who did their best to bury the whole period. Great buildings, like the Alcazar of Seville, keep the Moorish Berber legacy alive with its incredible Arabesque architecture that shows the skill of the Islamic craftsmen that once lived in present day Spain. I hope you enjoy these Alcazar of Seville photos”, Paul Williams.   See More of Our Photos of the Alcazar of Seville and Spain Download Alcazar of Seville PhotosRead More →
