Rainbow Protector: the answer to

It turns out that is a solar protector, which is in the garden of the Old Artillery Barracks. This is very modern and useful.
As I liked the two pictures I had done, I have decided to publish them in two days to enjoy better as well.

The Eye sees that everything

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.

The Segura river on its way through the city of Murcia.
It takes little water, but not until many years ago, was a river of floods in the autumn, with little water and the rest of the year.
Thanks to this river, Murcia is known as the Kitchen Garden of Europe. (La Huerta de Europa)

Casa Cerdá (Cerdá House) at Santo Domingo Square

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.
