I think Islamic architecture may be my spirit animal. It just speaks to me in ways that nothing else does. The patterns and colours and elegant shapes laid out symmetrically and with water everywhere. It feels both maximalist and minimalist at the same time. Balanced and beautiful.
That’s what’s behind the walls of the Real Alcazar in Seville. Built in the 13th Century for a Christian king by Muslim architects and craftsmen, its a palace of courtyards, fountains, and gardens that reminds one of the Alhambra.
It’s late and I need my beauty sleep, so here are the highlights–I’ll let the pictures do the talking.
