Ceiling detail, Gothic Palace of the Alcázar Real of Seville, Seville, Spain

Ceiling detail from the Gothic Palace of the Alcázar Real of Seville (Reales Alcázares de Sevilla), the royal palace in Seville originally built by Moorish Muslim rulers. Parts of the Gothic Palace, built by Alfonso X in 1254, were heavily damaged or destroyed by an earthquake in 1755. Baroque details were added during repairs and rebuilding. This ceiling is in the Tapestry Room which was totally rebuilt after the earthquake.
