Royal Monastery of Santa María de Guadalupe - Spain

This is another card from a spanish Unesco site, the Royal Monastery of Santa María de Guadalupe but not my 1st card from there though. That's a very impressive building, i'm sure i'd love to visit it and most of all, take some pictures of it. That's the kind of things i like to photograph.


The monastery is an outstanding repository of four centuries of Spanish religious architecture. It symbolizes two significant events in world history that occurred in 1492: the Reconquest of the Iberian peninsula by the Catholic Kings and Christopher Columbus' arrival in the Americas. Its famous statue of the Virgin became a powerful symbol of the Christianization of much of the New World. - in: http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/665
