Tales from the AUTHENTIC Costa del Sol …. and beyond
Looking through the lines and patterns of the Royal Alcazar in Seville, Spain.
This is my contribution to this week’s Worpress Photo Challenge: Lines and Patterns and the Travel Theme: Through
Very ornate … you’ve captured every detail.
Nice post ….
Thanks so much, Isadora
Have a great weekend, my friend x

What a wonderful variety – the view from the arch is beautiful!
Stunning shots and selection Marianne. Loved it. *hugs*
Thanks Sophia – weekend again!
Thanks Sophia:). It’s weekend again – where does the time go?
What an amazing beauty those moorish left behind, thanks for the great post! Greetz, Ron.
This part of the world is very fortunate with the amazing architecture left behind by the Moors.
Thanks for your comment, Ron.
Beautiful gallery Marianne, very tactile !
Yes, very tactile, Kathryn – and there are few restrictions if you want to touch them, either – which is unusual these days!
I want to come there directly and touch them all…sigh, some day!
That maze! Oh I love seeing the garden in the palace. Although, i wish to see it just by myself or maybe a bit few people. Ahihihi what odds that happening? Have you the awful Knight and Day? They filmed the last part in Sevilla
I think it would be pretty special – and unusual – to see the gardens at the Alcazar on your own. Maybe if you got there at opening time and ran there first!
So much variety in this challenge. Thanks for reminding me to go back to Seville, Marianne
Seville is always worth another visit, Jo – and not too far from your place in Portugal. Nearer than me, I think!
Much nearer, which is probably the problem, Marianne! We’ve only done it on day trips and if you drive into the city you’re sick (if you’re the driver- i.e Mick) before you start. Someday we’ll do a proper weekend.
Incidentally, Michael is adamant that he hasn’t got time for Tavira before we go to Barcelona in November. The business is busy and he can’t afford to turn work down. I’m still working on him
We’ve stayed in a few times and there’s always something new to discover. Love Cordoba, tooi!
Not sure of our dates for Portugal yet, as I have to wait for the swimming pool water to get down to 20C – but it’s usually around 3rd week in October. Heading to the Algarve first (meeting up with Allyson from The Algarve Blog) near Portimao before heading north!
These are gorgeous photos. YOu have such an eye for detail, as well as the big picture!
How kind of you to say so, Naomi – it’s comments like that that keep me doing it, sometimes. Thanks so much.
I agree, exactly what I was thinking!! finally got a chance to look at these close up. LOVE that alcazar, it’s my favorite in Spain! thanks for the memories Marianne
Glad I reminded you of it, Toby.
Beautiful and fascinating…
Amazing shots Marianne, they certainly make up a very interesting picture gallery!
Hello Ioanna – lovely to hear from you. I’m having trouble with certain people not showing up in my Reader Don’t seem to have seen you around for ages. Hope you are well
Thanks for your lovely comment.
I am here and there Marriane, my blog was not that active for some time, so maybe it’s not the reader’s fault.
But don’t worry, I can always drop by your blog for a cup of coffee!
fantastic, exquisite, amazing …. wonderful photos too Marianne … tempting us to visit next year!
OH yes – please do, Christine!
S is keen to go to Spain … you never know!
Beautiful colours and variety
Thanks Ella x
Fantastic lines and patterns. The photos look good together as tiles.
I did try the layout as mosaic at first, but preferred the tiles. Thanks for your comment – always appreciated, Trish.
There are so many great lines and patterns at Seville’s Alcazar, Marianne, and you captured them all beautifully.
It’s such a wonderful place to visit, isn’t it, Cathy? I enjoyed my visit there – but my heart still lies at the Alhambra
That’s a really beautiful maze of lines and patterns, Marianne. Great choice for the challenge.
It was an easy choice, Sylvia – the difficulty was selecting just which photos to use. How could I use just one?
An explosion of earthy colors. Love it! Beautiful, Marianne.
Every pattern is so beautiful and unique. You have such a good eye for a great photo!
Thanks Jody – very kind of you to say so.
This week’s subject was made for the Alcazar, I feel
Spain is already on my To Go list, but this just makes me even more determined to save for the end of next year! Thank you.
Oh yes – keep saving hard. You are going to LOVE Spain. It’s such a beautiful and diverse country
all the photos are absolutely fantastic, so much texture in everything.
…and I have so many more from my visit, Joan. It was a difficult choice to narrow it down to only nine!
Great post – reminded me of my visit there!
The photos said all that needed to be said – yes, fond memories
It’s such a beautiful place and people often forget it in favour of the Alhambra!
I still prefer the Alhambra over all – but our recent visit to the Alcazar for the first time was lovely. We’ve been to Seville a few times before, but hadn’t seen the Alcazar …until now
Ah yes! Makes me want to go!
Get yourself there then, John – it’s only three hours away
Wish I was there in Seville. Lovely pictures and motives.
All the best,
Thanks Hanna – and it’s such a great time of year to be in Seville right now
Great selections! Beautiful tile work and carvings.
Yes, very beautiful indeed – reminded me so much of the Alhambra in Granada.
I hope we get to Alhambra next May
OH how wonderful – you’ll love it, Amy.
Remind me of your visit again, nearer the time – and I’ll try to give you as much help as possible. Be sure to book your tickets online before your visit
Thank you so much, Marianne! Will talk to you when it gets closer to May
Look forward to it, Amy. May will be here before you know it!
Beautiful, every one!
Thanks – much appreciated!
Where you been???
Umm … I’ve been back to England and Wales …. and then skiving since I got back
I’ll let you off. Just this once
Hope you had a good time in ol’ blighty.
No, not really. Apart from the fact it rained almost all the time (which reinforced one of the main reasons why we moved to Spain in the first place) – I was visiting a very sick long-standing girlfriend. Lovely to see her, though
Great shots, Marianne!
Thanks Sue – it’s a great subject
Oh wow…you sure went for this challenge…lovely pics.
Yeah – I kinda had fun with it – thanks
Each one is lovely and together they are spectacular
It was so difficult to choose just those, Gilly – I have so many!
Perfect (choice) and oh, so beautiful :).
