Photographer's Note

Cathedral of Teruel and the tower in mudejar style. Inscribed as World Heritage by Unesco in 1986.
This is one of the four similar towers in Teruel, a small city (31'158 inhabitants in 2001) but charming. Peaceful and nice to walk along the streets or under these towers. You can see that they have an arch to pass trough.

Rather than my words, here you find what it was written on the Unesco web site:
"The development in the 12th century of Mudéjar art in Aragon resulted from the particular political, social and cultural conditions that prevailed in Spain after the Reconquista. This art, influenced by Islamic tradition, also reflects various contemporary European styles, particularly the Gothic. Present until the early 17th century, it is characterized by an extremely refined and inventive use of brick and glazed tiles in architecture, especially in the belfries."

Photo: original photo was too dark, so I changed the curves. I gave some blue color to the sky too. Finally, crop and frame added.
