Hello friends and colleagues, today I offer a view of the side facade of the palace of my city which for me is a bit of my childhood, and I was born and raised in a neighborhood around, today is a symbol of my town be gives the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art, I hope you enjoy. Then a few letters on the Foundation.
The Recreation Chain, later known as the Palacio de Abrantes, is a palace located in Jerez de la Frontera (Andalusia, Spain). Referring to the nineteenth-century palace architecture and Andalusian Jerez, is currently home to the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art.
Built in S. XIX, eclectic style, is attributed to the French architect Charles Garnier (author of the Paris Opera and the Monte Carlo Casino), although there is another theory that also defends the authorship of Samuel French architect Revel.
His style is characteristic of nineteenth-century eclectic architecture.
It has two facades, imitates oriental features monumental baroque and classical French Second Empire style called, and the West, which has more influence Neoclassical.
The botanical garden, fruit possessed at the time, great variety of flowers, lakes, ponds, fountains, grottos, iron bridges spanning the waters and exotic animals. Currently has extensive gardens with trees of the Indies and a bright central source.
The palace was commissioned by the French-born businessman Julian vintner Pemartín and Laborde (1861-1868), grandfather of José María Pemán, so the family crest crown the fence at the front door. Subsequently acquired by the Dukes of Abrantes-Carmen de Carvajal y Alcázar, Duchess XII, and Francisco de Borja Zuleta Reals, Belalcázar-Count, who took the name of the building.
The Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art in Jerez de la Frontera, is known worldwide for its exhibit "How the Andalusian Horses Dance", a unique show that showcases and summarizes so seemingly natural, all the work since its foundation develops this institution.
In May 1973, S. M. D. King Juan Carlos I, being Prince of Spain, presented in Jerez de la Frontera to D. Alvaro Domecq Romero the "Golden Horse", the highest honor awarded annually equestrian in our country in recognition of the dedication and work on behalf of the horse world. For this reason, Alvaro Domecq first presented his show "How the Andalusian Horses Dance" becoming the source of our current Foundation.
During the first stage, the School was developed under the personal management of its creator. Later, the Ministry of Information and Tourism decided to take charge of it, shopping for it the "Recreation Chains" the Duke of Abrantes. They then carried out the construction of an indoor arena, designed by architect José Luis Picardo, with capacity for 1,600 people and stables for 60 horses.
In 1982 the Ministry gives the responsibility of managing a Trust School, under the auspices of the Provincial de Cádiz, harnessing its relaunch so nationally and internationally.
The Board signed the purchase in 1983 of the School. Its creator and founder, D. Alvaro Domecq Romero, obtained through a public competition Square Manager.
Since 1986 the Department of the Board has exceeded most optimistic goals, finding and providing the necessary resources Institution: economic, human and technical. It is in this year when the school acquired the block of D. Pedro Domecq de la Riva, consisting of thirty-five Spanish horses and a colorful collection of nineteen chariots of fire with appropriate side dishes, some of which date back to 1730, and saddle and embroidery for horses and coachmen, all parts of incalculable historical value.
In June 1987, S. M. The King receives special audience in the Zarzuela Palace Board members, accepting the Honorary Presidency and the entity granting the title "Royal School". On 15 October the same year SS. MM. King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia presided from the Presidential Balcony of the opening ceremony of riding the Royal School Foundation.
In July 2003 the former Royal School Board Foundation becomes, thereby gaining strength in its legal personality and may accept private contributions for its development.
Although the show "How the Andalusian Horses Dance" is, for the outside world, the ultimate form of the work of the school, there are other aspects that are as important or more for the Bank.
Among them we highlight the cultural and social be vehicle Equestrian Heritage; selecting horses for promotion, training of riders from High School, preservation and promotion of dressage and Cowgirl, preserve the prestige of our riding, our Spanish horse race , our traditions and our culture, and with the show, hosting the province of Cadiz and Spain embassy abroad, touring year for various countries.
For all Royal School Foundation conducts training of riders, coachmen hitches, saddlers, clinical assistants and grooms.

la fuerte saturación de los colores da un enorme poder visual a esta imagen, en la que nos presentas la elegante arquitectura de este palacio del siglo XIX, y el eclecticismo de su estilo, bajo una luz agradable que proyecta bonitas sombras sobre los jardines.
El encuadre es eficiente y capta todo lo que querías incluir en tu composición, en un magnífico contraste cromático.
Un bello trabajo, amigo mío.
PD: me sabe mal por el Málaga, pero ayer otro partidazo de récord.
