Alcazar of Seville’s Patio del Yeso

Posted by

My research paper will review the Patio del Yeso located in the Alcazar in Seville. This paper will form an extended visual analysis of the Patio del Yeso and how it can be used as an example of a portion of a palace that represents the shift from Almohad architectural styles to Mudejar in medieval Spain.
