Badajoz - Spain

Not so long ago i traded with Luis from Spain and today i've received more cards from him. These 2 are from Badajoz.

The Giralda of Badajoz is a tower that is part of a building constructed as the headquarters of the popular commercial establishment 'Stores La Giralda', nowadays disappeared.

It was built in 1935 as a replica of the famous Giralda of Seville, the bell tower of the Cathedral of Seville, although some of its decorative elements were adapted to the prevailing formulas time. The architecture is blend of ceramic tiles, vases, tiles and wrought iron, all topped with a statue of the god Mercury, symbol of commerce. - in:

I forgot i already had a card with this convent, the Adoratrices Convent. Is not the same view though.
