Mercury's Pool, the Alcazar

The water falling behind me lands in Mercury's Pool, located on a raised patio outside the second floor of the Alcazar. Here the architects seem to have abandoned the Moorish style in favor of a stone facade unlike anything Lisa or I have ever seen, and complete with murals of what look like mythological scenes, cherubs, and other miscellany. Beautifu but bizarre.
