The Alcazar

Spanish fans from the 16th century











I really enjoyed the shapes and forms within the Alcazar, as well as the history that sparked my imagination. Who's idea was it to line the fountain with these beautiful tiles of birds and ladies? I couldn't help but wonder about the people that used those fans when I saw them. I'm a sucker for history and fancy dress.  You can read all about the Alcazar here and here if you're interested.
