Patterns, treasures, magic...

Grays recently visited Seville and got enthralled by the myriads of exquisite and intriguing patterns found in the Mudejar architecture which is a combination of Moorish and Christian art. Colours and patterns interlock in a visual feast which is unrivalled by any other architectural style.
