Photographer's Note

In the Almudena Cathedral in Madrid, we find this wonderful roof ...

The pictorial decoration of the roofs is of a geometric work of the painter José Luis Galicia, in a colorful style that is somewhat reminiscent of traditional Mudejar coffered ceiling. The use of gold leaf gives these paintings a special warmth. The dome, painted by the artist himself, has as grounds the four elements (earth, sea, fire and air) at its four corners, holding the sky.
