Los Baños de Doña María de Padilla

Los Baños de Doña María de Padilla (The “Baths of Lady María de Padilla”) are a part of The Alcázar of Seville, Spain, a royal palace, originally a Moorish fort. It is the oldest royal palace still in use in Europe, and it was registered in 1987 by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.

The impressive baths are rainwater tanks beneath the Patio del Crucero; they were named  after María de Padilla, the mistress of Peter the Cruel.

I must say, I’m amazed…
