    Lovely photographs! The colors are so vivid. Did you take all of these?

    I’m not that familiar with Spain’s architecture except for Antoni Gaudí (Sagrada Família). I always feel like his work belongs in a Salvador Dalí painting.

    What are the names of the buildings in photos 10, 12, 14, 16, & 17?

    @Renuka-I could not agree more. Spain is so photogenic!

    @Jo Ann-Yep, took all of them myself! I’m not one to usually “brag” abut my photographs but looking back at them again on Blogger, I was really impressed with their quality.

    Spain is a country where maybe excluding January, you can always count on incredible blue skies!

    Thank you! I have a DSLR now but actually all of the Spain photos were taken with a digital camera point and shoot.

    The Museum of FIne Arts was such a pleasant surprise. It had a ton of wonderful works.

    You really get a 2 for 1 architectural tour in Andalucía. All the Moorish stuff is great, but it’s nice being able to go from mosque to cathedral in a block or two.

    Wonderfully said! Yes, Andalusia is amazing that you have all of these cultures that were just “built” on top of each other. I haven’t been to every region in Spain but for the ones I have, it’s definitely my favorite.
