I wanted to see the old Sinagoga in Cordoba and I walked around in Juderia, the old Jewish quarter. By chance I visited a delightful place - Casa Andalusi - Andalusian house. It is a small museum that shows how Moorish Andalusians lived in the middle ages. The house was constructed in the 12th century and has objects from the Moorish past. In its rooms and patios one can see collections of old coins. There is an exhibit of how Arabs made paper, with one of the oldest machines to make paper. The basement shows archaeological remains. There is also a Roman mosaic.
I was also fascinated by the mysterious woman there dressed in a long white dress. I was a bit shy to ask her for a photo, but she kindly agreed to have a photo with me . I would prefer the photo without this fat lady in green :) but nice anyway. Lady in white and lady in green
If you ever go to Cordoba, do not miss it. It is magical place, with very mysterious atmosphere, enhanced with beautiful music and the sound of fountain. Hear it here: www.lacasaandalusi.com (push play music)
Big photo in beta

une belle présentation qui restitue bien l'atmosphère de ces belles maisons andalouses. La lumière est très belle et l'image très bien composée.

In this well composed shot you bring together colors, textures and shapes. The medieval stonework blends effectively with the tapestry and plants. You also create a warmth with the lighting inside the chamber.
I will see the other photos, including with the woman in white, and the fat lady in green.
NOTE: I just returned to make a note. I had no idea "the fat lady in green" referred to a self-deprecating Malgorzata!

The Andalusian House looks inviting for its historical Moorish features, and the addition of soothing greenery - adding Nature to blend with the hardscape.
thanks for sharing,
PS: I tried my first Workshop process...?

Faktycznie bardzo klimatyczne miejsce odnalazłaś w Cordobie, ale to nic w porównaniu do tego jak je pokazałaś!. Piekne nasycone kolory i dom który zacheca do zwiedzenia. Super prezentacja

Beautiful and typical Andalusian patio. I like all elements here and the diffused light.

This place has a comfortable but exotic look Malgo. So many details to delight the eye. Is this shot taken from an enclosed interior courtyard? I do like that feature in Moorish architecture.
Atmospheric and evocative work.

your hispano gallery is a smiling star of your work. The result of hard experience and your sensibility. I like this corner and I am so glad to follow you in the world. You should be useful in Brazil now.

A nicely composed image rich in colours and interesting features. It looks like a cool place to go when the sun is hot.

Good evening Malgo,
Superbly show the shaded inner garden in one of the old houses in Cordoba, a typical caring of the facade - yet I find this charming with calm ambiance conveyed.
Clarity, DOF and light management was super.

this is a very lovely and fascinating place, the information provided by your note increases its charm. I like very much how you are giving us a glimpse of the patio and of the interior, there's great sense of space and the details are brilliant. I love the colours and the atmosphere, I can see the point in Ray's workshop but I prefer the contrast of the warm light and the allure of the shady environment here. In your workshop picture, the white lady's smile is weird and mysterious, yours is much more agreeable:)
Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
