Learning in Cordoba, Spain | Flor Lepervanche | #Europe2017 [ESP]

IMG_6863
Mezquita-Catedral de Córdoba

Saliendo de Malaga y en camino a Avila, paramos en Cordoba y visitamos la Mezquita – Catedral. Era Domingo y tuvimos la bendicion de asistir a la Misa final de cierre de la exposición a la Virgen de Fatima por sus 100 años de la Aparición.

IMG_6871
Mezquita-Catedral de Córdoba


La construccion como mezquita fue realizada en el año 785 por los conquistadores musulmanes, con la apropiación y reutilización de los materiales de la basílica hispanorromana de San Vicente Mártir.


Fue la segunda mezquita más grande del mundo en superficie, por detrás de la Mezquita de La Meca.

IMG_6882
Mezquita-Catedral de Córdoba


En 1238, tras la Reconquista cristiana de la ciudad, se llevó a cabo su consagración como catedral de la diócesis con la ordenación episcopal de su primer obispo, Lope de Fitero.
En 1523, bajo la dirección de los arquitectos Hernán Ruiz, el Viejo y su hijo, se construyó su basílica cruciforme renacentista de estilo plateresco.

IMG_6942
Altar Mayor de la Mezquita-Catedral de Córdoba


Hoy el conjunto constituye el monumento más importante de Córdoba y con la Alhambra de toda la arquitectura andalusí, así como el más emblemático del arte omeya hispanomusulmán.

La Mezquita – Catedral fue declarada como Bien de interés cultural y Patrimonio Cultural de la Humanidad como parte del centro histórico de la ciudad, se incluyó por el público entre los 12 Tesoros de España en 2007 y fue premiada como el mejor sitio de interés turístico de Europa y sexto del mundo según un concurso de TripAdvisor.

Leaving Malaga and on the road to Avila, we stopped at Cordoba and visited the Mosque – Cathedral. It was Sunday and we had the blessing of attending the final mass closing of the exhibition of the Virgin of Fatima for her 100 years of the appearance.

The mosque construction was made in the year 785 by the Muslim conquerors with the appropriation and reuse of materials from the basilica of San Vicente Mártir.

It was the second largest mosque in the world in surface, behind the mosque in Mecca.
In 1238, after the Christian conquest of the city, it was consecrated as the Cathedral of the diocese with the episcopal ordination of its first bishop, Lope de Fitero.

In 1523, under the direction of the architects Hernán Ruiz, the father and his son, they built the Renaissance cruciform basilica in the plateresque style.

Today the Assembly is the most important monument of Cordoba and the Alhambra in the Andalusian architecture, as well as the most emblematic of the Spanish-Muslim Omeya art.

Avila, la ciudad amurallada | España 2017 | Flor Lepervanche [ESP]

2017-avila-spain_20170626_11133520170626_111458

[ESP] A la ciudad de Avila llegamos en automovil desde Malaga por el Oeste de España pasando por bellos paisajes cerca de la ciudad de Merida y luego montañas con grandes precipicios en la Serranía de Gredos. Estas montañas nos recordaron a los Andes Venezolanos y pudimos observar las vacas negras Avileñas cuando las estaban arreando y llevando a sus establos en el atardecer.

2017-avila-spain_20170625_210309
Al llegar a Avila fue una bellisima sorpresa la visión de una ciudad amurallada tan grande, era de noche y estaba iluminada. Ávila es mundialmente famosa y admirada por ésta muralla medieval que la rodea. Otra agradable sorpresa fué el hotel donde nos hospedamos dentro de la muralla y denominado “Palacio de Monjaraz”. Este hotel es un proyecto familiar, que en la actualidad dá continuidad a la adquisición y rehabilitación de ésta Casa – Palacio. El Palacio de Monjaraz es un hotel con encanto, cada una de sus estancias lo trasladan a uno a otra época, cada rincón de ésta casa tiene su historia, su leyenda y su singular belleza inducen a la reflexión y el bienestar. Perfecto para una escapada romántica. 

2017-avila-spain_IMG_7285
Avila es la capital de provincia más alta de España, con 1.182 metros de altitud, y la cuarta ciudad de Europa. Tiene un perímetro de más de 2.500 metros con 87 torreones. Si de día resulta espectacular, la panorámica de esta ciudad amurallada es sorprende durante la noche y el atardecer desde los conocidos Cuatro Postes, un mirador privilegiado para el visitante.

2017-avila-spain_IMG_7509
Avila es famosa tambien por La iglesia levantada sobre la casa natal de Teresa de Cepeda y Ahumada (Santa Teresa de Avila). La Iglesia forma un conjunto con el convento carmelitano y por debajo se encuentra la gran cripta abovedada de enterramientos, actual museo teresiano y única dentro de la arquitectura religiosa española.

2017-avila-spain_IMG_7754
En el más puro estilo Barroco Carmelitano, la iglesia tiene planta de cruz latina con nave central y capillas laterales, cuatro por banda. Con el Altar mayor al Noroeste, no sigue la orientación litúrgica establecida, alteración que responde al hecho de hacer coincidir el presbiterio con los aposentos donde nacería Teresa de Jesús. En el brazo derecho del crucero se abre el acceso a la capilla de Santa Teresa, coincidente con estancias de la residencia paterna, y, enfrente, la “huertecilla donde la Santa hacía sus ermitas”.

2017-avila-spain_IMG_7957
La fachada, planteada a manera de retablo, se organiza en tres cuerpos, destacando la imagen de la Santa, en mármol, y los escudos de los Cepeda y Ahumada, la Orden de los Carmelitas descalzos, el del Conde Duque de Olivares, el de Intendencia y el de Doctora de la Iglesia. En la misma plaza, se encuentra la Sala de las Reliquias y una pequeña tienda de recuerdos. En 1886, iglesia y convento son declarados Monumento Histórico.

2017-avila-spain_IMG_7489
En Avila tambien nos reencontramos con nuestros amigos Jacqueline y Willi , con quienes almorzamos y probamos el Chuleton Avileño y al dia siguiente nos invitaron a su casa a comer unas deliciosas arepas venezolanas que ya nos hacian falta.

June 25, 2017

We arrived to the city of Avila by car from Malaga West of Spain passing through beautiful landscapes near the city of Merida and then mountains with great precipices in the”Serranía de Gredos”. These mountains reminded us to the Venezuelan Andes and we saw the black cows Avilenas when they were herding and leading to their stables in the sunset.

2017-avila-spain_IMG_7669
Arriving at Avila was a beautiful surprise the vision of a walled city, it was night and was lit. Avila is worldwide famous and admired by the medieval wall that surrounds it. Another pleasant surprise was the hotel where we stayed within the wall and known as “Palace of Monjaraz”. This hotel is a family project, which currently gives continuity to the acquisition and rehabilitation of this House – Palace. Monjaraz Palace is a hotel with charm, each of its rooms they move one to another era, every corner of this House has its history, its legend and its singular beauty induce reflection and welfare. Perfect for a romantic getaway.

Avila is the capital of highest province of Spain, 1182 meters in altitude, and the fourth largest city in Europe. It has a perimeter of more than 2,500 meters with 87 towers. If day is spectacular, the panoramic view of this walled city is surprised at night and sunset from the well known four poles, a viewpoint for the visitor.

2017-avila-spain_IMG_7638
Avila is famous also for the church built on the birthplace of Teresa de Cepeda y Ahumada (St. Teresa of Avila). The Church forms a set with the Carmelite convent and below great vaulted crypt burials, is current teresiano and unique museum within the Spanish religious architecture.

2017-avila-spain_IMG_7794
In Carmelite Baroque style, the Church has Latin cross plan with nave and side chapels, four per band. With the main Altar to the Northwest, does not follow the established liturgical orientation, alteration that responds to the fact to match the presbytery with the quarters where he would be born Teresa de Jesús. On the right arm of the transept opens access to the chapel of Santa Teresa, coincident with the paternal residence stays, and, opposite, the “huertecilla where the Santa made his hermitages”.

2017-avila-spain_IMG_7756
The façade, posed as an altarpiece, is organised in three bodies, highlighting the image of the Saint, in marble, and the shields of the Cepeda and smoked, the order of Carmelites Discalced, of the count-Duke of Olivares, the quartermaster and doctor of the Church. In the same square, lies the Hall of relics and a small souvenir shop. In 1886, Church and convent are declared historical monument.

2017-avila-spain_IMG_7513
In Avila we also met with our friends Jacqueline and Willi, with whom we had lunch and we ate the famous “Chuletón Avileño” and the next day we were invited to their house to eat some delicious Venezuelan arepas which already we were missing.
