We entered the Puerta del León formerly called de la Monteria.
We started to visit the Palace of Pedro I, who earns the name of the King who promoted its construction in the fourteenth century.
Entered later in the Patio de las Doncellas and here we feel the arabic roots who are part of Andalusian culture. The richness and detail of the arches are really worthy of contemplation.
We then go the Hall of Ambassadors where we see a beautiful dome. But equally impressive is the work and detail of each wall that has three arches “califales” eventually connect two rooms, the Ambassadors and the Pavones (Peacock).
We arrived after to the fantastic gardens of the Reales Alcazares. I say “gardens” because there are many, from the English through the Los Poets and the La Alcubilla.
One of the nicest is the garden of Mercury, which as the name suggests has in the middle of a small fountain a statue of the God Mercury.
A parte interessante é que a maior queda de água nesta fonte vinha de cima do palácio. E por trás da fonte de Mercúrio está a Galeria del Grutesco, que na parte de cima funciona como um miradouro para ver os belos jardins e nas suas paredes, arcos que emolduram pinturas de figuras e fábulas mitológicas.
The interesting part is that the biggest drop of water in this fountain was coming from above the palace. And behind the Mercury‘s fountain there is the Gallery del Grutesco that top parts is a lookout to see the beautiful gardens and its walls, arches that frame paintings of mythological figures and fables.
