the Mesquita

September 13, 2004

I loved the Moorish decorations in the Mesquita (in fact, I liked them so much more than the cathedral in the middle of the room that I don't seem to have a single picture of it!), and the ones near the front of the room, where the prayers were led, are the most ornate by far. They tend toward heavy gilding, lots of color, and several rows of designs and Koranic inscriptions.
