The El Pilar Cathedral was one of the reasons I wanted to visit Zaragoza during our trip to Spain. This particular shot appeared to be much easier in theory than in practice. To capture this church and The Ebro River from this view, involved having mud in my shoes.
The full name of this structure is The Cathedral-Basilica of Our Lady of the Pillar and in Spanish – Catedral-Basílica de Nuestra Señora del Pilar. The façade which you see was built between 1681 and 1872 in Baroque style. When I looked at the lights warmly enlightening this building and the decorative couples, I had a rather One Thousand and One Night Tales moment in my mind, rather than the European Baroque Church.
