Good morning Master, thank you very much for your comment, I am glad and I am very flattered that you liked the post. A hug.

Una acuarela muy hermosa @vicenteajb. La arquitectura barroca es muy abarrota de detalles y tu haces un trabajo plástico muy sutil y ciertamente fiel a lo que veías. Nunca he estado en Alicante. En una oportunidad estuve en el Sur de España (Málaga, Torremolino, Sevilla y Granada) y quedé fascinada. Si algún día puedo volver a España, seguro buscaré la Basílica de Santa María y me acordaré de usted. Gracias por compartir su obra. Cordiales Saludos

Muchas gracias marcybetancourt por tus palabras, cierto que el barroco hay multitud de detalles, los sitios que visitaste son espectaculares sobre todo Granada es un de mis ciudades favoritas junto con Toledo, no dudes si vuelves a España visitar Alicante. Un saludo.

Wooow, te quedó super lindo y llamativo, debe tener bastante historia ese lugar👏👏

Hola iamsaray, muchas gracias por tus palabras me alegro que te haya gustado, cierto que su historia es muy larga. Un saludo.
