Where in Spain Wednesday – Segovia’s Cathedral at Sunset

Happy Wednesday, everyone! Here’s one of my favorite pictures from my trip to Castilla y León – the beautiful Segovia cathedral at sunset.  The pretty city is famous for its huge Roman aqueduct (which definitely still works!), but my favorite part of my visit was wandering through the cobblestoned streets as the sun set over … Continue reading

Where in Spain Wednesday – Sevilla’s “Las Setas” (The Mushrooms)

Hello everybody! After last week’s Gaudí post, I’m back with more bizarre architecture from Spain!  This week, it’s a sculpture in Sevilla. It’s known as “Las Setas” (“The Mushrooms”) because of their weird shape. It’s officially the Metro Parasol. They were originally supposed to be done in 2007, but it was under construction the whole … Continue reading

Lots of Sundays, I nip downstairs and go snap some … Continue reading

Where in Spain Wednesday – Valencia’s City of Arts & Sciences

Here’s yet another piece of surprising architecture from Spain – Valencia’s famous Ciudad de las Artes y Las Ciencias.  This building is such an iconic symbol of Valencia that before I went, it was pretty much the only thing I recognized as specifically being from Valencia. It’s surrounded by water because it’s built on an … Continue reading

Where in Spain Wednesday – Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter

Here’s one of my favorite areas of Barcelona – the gorgeous Gothic quarter.  It’s a bit misleading to call it just the Gothic Quarter. You can see remains from all the way back to the Roman days, as well as modernist touches here and there. It’s really layers upon layers of different eras, and you … Continue reading

Where in Spain Wednesday – the Aqueduct of Segovia

Here’s a photo from Segovia, one of the prettiest places I went to in Castilla y León. This aqueduct is left over from the Roman days, but it’s in perfect condition – and still works!  I went to Castilla y León back in March and visited tiny Ávila and pretty Salamanca before finishing up in … Continue reading
