#Arabic bath in Real Alcázar de #Sevilla .
📖 In ancient Al #Andalus#الاندلس , the public bath or #Hamma#حمام was one of the main centres of community life. An activity of a ritual nature, in which bodily hygiene was considered an act of religious purification. ☪️
When in the year 711 the troops of the #Omayyad#Caliphate from #Damascus#دمشق , originating from the #MiddleEast 🌙 and #NorthAfrica 🐪, arrived on the peninsula via #Gibraltar ⛰, they found the water management technology that had been created by the #Romans 🏛. They soon adopted this #engineering , and raised it to previously unseen levels. From this fusion of #cultures the #Andalusian#Hammams emerged, which were very different from the public baths found in the rest of the world.
In general, the #Andalusian#Arab Baths had various areas, such as a dressing area, #cold , #warm and #hot water areas, and the stove area. The main area, which occupied the centre, was the warm area. This was also the largest area, where the people spent the majority of their time. 🗣💧
Dentro de la #arquitectura#tradicional#canaria existe un elemento que destaca sobre los demás, los #balcones canarios.
De influencia claramente andaluza y portuguesa, el balcón canario se encuentra presente en las 7 #islas con pocas diferencias entre ellas.
Sin embargo si queremos admirar algunos de los mejores ejemplos debemos acudir a los municipios donde se encuentran las mayores casonas señoriales, por ejemplo en Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, en el Barrio de #vegueta , en la calle de los Balcones, de pulcro empedrado, que enfila hacia el mar entre casas nobles, podemos verlos. No debemos olvidar, que aunque podemos encontrar balcones canarios en casas muy humildes, este es un símbolo de estatus. Sus dimensiones, la riqueza de sus formas y tallas o los materiales usados para su construcción eran un claro exponente del estrato social en el que se encontraba el propietario.
La función de este tipo de balcones, al igual que en el sur de la península, es la de favorecer la ventilación y la sombra dentro de casa.
La madera utilizada para la fabricación de balcones canarios es la que se podía encontrar en las islas y que ofrecía la resistencia adecuada, tea proveniente del pino canario.
Within the traditional #Canarian#architecture there is an #element that stands out above the others, the Canarian #balconies .
Of influence clearly #Andalusian and #Portuguese , the Canarian balcony is present in the 7 islands with few differences between them.
However, if we want to admire some of the best examples, we must go to the municipalities where the largest stately mansions are located, for example in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, in the Vegueta neighborhood, on Balcones street, with a neat stone pavement. head towards the sea between noble houses, we can see them. We must not forget that although we can find Canarian balconies in very humble homes, this is a symbol of status. Its dimensions, the richness of its shapes and sizes or the materials used for its construction were a clear exponent of the social stratum in which the owner was.

Today wasabi fun! @ponysinbalance came and visited us! She’s the first person outside of me who’s worked with Quincy since he’s been here. It was really fun to see him “work” with someone else! Alexandra was too nice and even brought two “pool noodles”, so now we have two extra tools to work with!! He wasn’t too sure about them but as you can see he did warm up to them by the end!

❤️You have to believe in yourself when no one else does. Set goals, stay quiet about them, smash the shit out of them and then clap for your damn self. Then repeat that shit again! ❤️ #horses#Andalusian
