The Tilework at Sevilla’s Alcazar Makes Great Desktop Wallpaper

Yes, only I will travel 4,000 miles to a foreign land, look at the mind-blowingly beautiful tilework of a 500-year old palace and think, “Hmmmm, this would make a great wallpaper for my laptop.”

The Alcazar in Sevilla is such a place to fulfill your computer or mobile wallpaper fantasies. Sure you can find some photos in Google Imagine Search, but there’s a certain satisfaction in taking the photo yourself.

As you know if you paid attention in your ancient European history classes, Southern Spain was under Muslim rule. The influence from Middle Eastern architecture and the Alhambra in nearby Granada is seen throughout the palace. The geometric patterns in the tilework is indicative of that style.
