Photographer's Note

Yesterday I showed the view of the Aljaferia Palace from outside, here the view of the interior. Maybe less decorated than Alhambra, but much less known and visited. I liked the islamic arches very much. In the morning, the first half an hour there were no guided groups.
The building of the palace – mostly made between 1065 and 1081 — was ordered by Abú Ya'far Ahmad ibn Sulaymán al-Muqtadir Billah, known by his honorary title of Al-Muqtadir (The powerful), second monarch of the Banu Hud dynasty, as a symbol of the power achieved by the Taifa of Zaragoza in the second half of the 11th century.

In Workshop closer view of the arches.
