Salamanca - the parador

 

Rather like a modern fortress, contrasting with the old city on the other side of the river.

I agree with you about its fortress-like appearance Tom.
Tom Wilson: Quite effective, I think.
Goodness, it is quite different!
Tom Wilson: It is indeed!

Tom Wilson: A required decoration these days, Ray smile

Any idea of the date, Tom?
Tom Wilson: None at all, I'm afraid, Lisl - I've searched for that information and on who the architect was, but can find nothing.

I can definitely say I've seen worse than this Tom
Tom Wilson: Indeed! I think it is a pretty good modern building!
it does have a squat, pugilistic kind of a look to it, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Better than many a modern structure I've seen, Ayush smile
This is rather nasty Tom !

The building I hasten to add
Tom Wilson: Oh, it has a certain brutalist appeal, Bill smile
I like that you have captured a person in a window.
Tom Wilson: I must admit that that was unintentional Mary - in fact, I hadn't noticed it!
A bit like something designed by a modern English architect!
Tom Wilson: Or, indeed, Spanish!
on dirait une prison!!! amitiés
Tom Wilson: Mais une prison très confortable! smile

Almost funny to see this in the city where you showed the old cathedral and university. Life goes on.
Tom Wilson: And fashions change... smile
stacks of boxes for people to live in Tom... not very attractive... i do like the reflection of the sky on the windows....petersmile
Tom Wilson: I've seen worse, Peter smile
better to live inside where you could not see it...
