Photographer's Note

Visiting my homecity...
The tower of "La Magdalena" taken from one of the towers of the basilica of "El Pilar", 60 meter heigh.
This and other mudejar style towers in Zaragoza and its region (Aragon) were included in the Unesco's World Heritage List in 2001 as an extension of the Mudejar Architecture of Teruel, already included in 1986.
Note of the Unesco's web page:
"The development in the 12th century of Mudéjar art in Aragon resulted from the particular political, social and cultural conditions that prevailed in Spain after the Reconquista. This art, influenced by Islamic tradition, also reflects various contemporary European styles, particularly the Gothic. Present until the early 17th century, it is characterized by an extremely refined and inventive use of brick and glazed tiles in architecture, especially in the belfries."
