In Murcia city, in August, we should not pay for parking on the street. At least we have one month's pay a little less tax. A few years ago, most car parks in August, were unoccupied. Today, it is more difficult to find where to park.
This is a detail of the Church of Santo Domingo. I liked the framework created with those two doves inside the circular window. It is somewhat striking. To the right of the picture, you can see a human silhouette, as if rock art. But only a shadow created by light on the wall.
In front of town hall in Murcia, are these gardens, with fountains, flowers, etc.. The flowers are changed each season. The building that is behind the flag, is the former Hotel Victoria, in honor of Queen Victoria. In its day was the most popular accommodation in the city. For here went bullfighters, artists and celebrities of the era. It was built in 1850 on the old hotel Universal it was originally the hotel Paris. Today is a building of private homes.
This is one of the buildings that I like most of the city. Located next to the Plaza Santo Domingo, near the Trapería Street. Emphasize high Ionic columns of its facade and the circular temple that crowns the entire building. Built during the first half of the twentieth century. It was commanded by the building who was then chairman of the commerce chamber. Today is a private building.
