The palace inside the Alkazar, Spain

We walked from one architectural masterpiece to another. This archway fronted a door into the king's chamber. The king, Peter the cruel, who ruled in 1350 for 16 years, had the palace built along Muslim architectural themes, apparently because he liked them better than the Christian architecture of the day. Regardless of what kind of king he was, he had good taste in palaces.
