 Spain, Hondarribia.

 A little severe esthetics, but really original and of good quality. Inspire from the past I think, because I sighted some similar ones.


Purity and elegance of the Moorish style with its   tiles, directly coming from the south of Spain, which was strongly influenced by the arabic invasion of the mediteranean.  hibis

Les haciendas sont s rachetées par les grands groupes financiers pour en faire des hôtels de grand luxe.
