Contrasts…



Madrid’s Plaza Mayor and its typical Christmas/new year market; here you can buy from the strangest mask to little angels for your Christmas tree…
On second plan ‘La casa de la Panaderia’ by Juan Gómez de Mora on XXVII century, typology that inspired Juan de Villanueva, one century later, to draw ‘Plaza Mayor’… The actual building and ‘affreschi’ were restored in the early 90’s.

As the photo is long to show, you have to wait for the contrast, and when it comes, it's stunning.
