Spain with Tony Murtagh

Seville Cathedral


The Cathedral of Saint Mary of the See, better known as Seville Cathedral, is a Roman Catholic cathedral in Seville. It is the largest Gothic cathedral and the third-largest church in the world.

The Plaza De Espana


The Plaza de Espana, designed by Anibal Gonzalez, was a principal building built on the Maria Luisa Parks edge to showcase Spain's industry and technology exhibits during the Ibero-American Exposition in 1929.

The Mudejar Pavilion


The Mudejar Pavilion was built by the architect AnĂ­bal Gonzalez as part of an extensive urban development project for the 1929 Ibero-American Exhibition. The pavilion, which functioned as the Palace of Decorative Arts for the exposition, is located in the Plaza de America, part of the arrangement of exhibition buildings set within the gardens of the Maria Luisa Park. Glazed tile fountains, benches, and architecture within the Park refer, often whimsically, to Spain's Islamic past.

About Tony

Happily retired after a career spent in sales and marketing management, I took photography up as a serious hobby in 2010 after buying my first decent digital camera (a Panasonic Lumix) prior to going on safari to Kenya in the February . I have now changed to a Cannon DSLR. and have had photographs published in the national and international press including the UK, France and Australia as well in the local press and on a regional companies calendar for the last two years. In January 2013 my photo of a 'Three Headed Giraffe' was a finalist in the Wanderlust Travel Photo of the Year in the Wildlife section. In May 2014, my photo of a black-backed jackal was included in A Field Guide to the Larger Mammals of Tanzania (Princeton Field Guides). I live in Bicester, Oxfordshire and enjoy photographing landscapes, wildlife and plants and flowers, both locally and in Europe and Africa.
