The Escorial: Art and Power in the Renaissance - Henry Kamen

€ 42.95

Fotoboek van het paleis van San Lorenzo Escoral en de prachtige tuin, het complex staat net buiten Madrid en heeft een plek gekergen op de World Heritage Site.

Few buildings have played so central a role in Spain's history as the monastery-palace of San Lorenzo del Escorial. Colossal in size and imposing - even forbidding - in appearance, the Escorial has invited and defied description for four centuries. Part palace, part monastery, part mausoleum, it has also served as a shrine, a school, a repository for thousands of relics, and one of the greatest libraries of its time. Constructed over the course of more than twenty years, the Escorial challenged and provoked, becoming for some a symbol of superstition and oppression, for others a 'wonder of the world'. Now a World Heritage Site
