You can really see the skill and workmanship which is involved in creating a thing of beauty like this building, the Alcazar. You really have to hand it to the monarchs of the day – they had vision and stopped as almost nothing to achieve it. I sometimes wonder whether in a 1000 years time, would our future descendants think of our society in the same way – hold us in awe for our art, culture, architecture etc. In this world of pre-fab homes and cheap building materials…I am not sure!
