Notes on the Geography of Spain: Seville: Photo 22

world pictures Spain: Seville

We've left the Alcazar and are going to the Casa de Pilatos, a mansion from about 1500.  The name was not intended to suggest that the house was modelled on Pilate's House in Jerusalem; rather, the pious owner calculated that the distance between his house and the church of Cruz del Campo was the distance between Pilate's House in Jerusalem and  Golgotha. Behind the gate or cancela lies a masterpiece of mudejar display, beginning with the alfiz, the U-shaped architrave copied from the one at Cordoba's Mesquita.
