It´s Flyday Friday once again and as promised, here´s part 2 of my Zaragoza trip two weeks ago. Please be warned that I´m gonna drown you with architecture and design photos. ;)
This is the Aljafería Palace, a fortified medieval Islamic palace built on the second half of the 11 century by the Arab conquerors which later on became the residence of the Christian kings of the Kingdom of Aragon just before Spain was unified as one country. Wow, that´s quite a lot of information in one sentence. ;)
Entrance door leading to the patio:
The palace reminded of the Alhambra in Granada which is another magnificent sight to see. As much as I love the simplicity of modern design, the mudejar style never fails to impress with it´s intricate and well scuptured design, vibrant colors and very high historic value. It really is an awespiring art which I don´t mind seeing over and over again.
What I Wore:
Another comfortable outfit for non-stop walking and climbing stairs. I tried breaking the monochromatic look with the chambray shirt and since I love color, added the multi-colored knitted scarf.
One of the beautifully decorated ceilings!
I think this is one of the most important doors( done in baroque style) of the palace because of the seal heald by the two scuptured lions which...
reminded me of my lion ring worn on the first day of the trip. ;)
