the Alcazar

September 14, 2004

The Alcazar gardens in daylight (as opposed to at night, when it hosts the outdoor flamenco we watched). Oddly enough, this Alcazar was built by Christian rulers (no clue why they used the Moorish name) on the site of Roman ruins, and the gardens weren't added until I believe the 1800s. So it's quite a mishmash, but beautiful nonetheless.
