Friday January 24th. Back into the streets of Sevilla for the afternoon activity after completing our visit of Casa de Pilatos.

24.24: Leaf on Bench

The symbol as you can see in the next picture, is the letters NODO with a piece of roped thread in the middle. It became the motto after the “Reconquest” of Seville from the Muslims in 1248. King Fernando III, El Santo, King of Castilla and Leon moved his court to the former Muslim palace, the Alcazar of Sevilla. The symbol, which is spoken as “No me ha dejado” translates to “it (Sevilla) who did not abandon me.” When spoken in a Sevillian accent, the phrase sounds like “no madeja-do,” which explains the NO&DO symbol, as majeda can mean looped thread. After San Fernando’s death in the Real Alcazar, his son, Alfonso X, “the Wise”, assumed the throne. Alfonso X was a scholar king, hense his title. He was a poet, astronomer, astrologer, musician, and linguist. Alfonso’s son, Sancho IV of Castile, tried to steal the throne from his father, but the people of Seville remained loyal to their king and this is where NO8DO was believed to have originiated when, according to legend, Alfonso X rewarded the fidelity of the “sevillains” with the words that now appear as the official of emblem of the city of Seville.

From Wikipedia: Metropol Parasol is a wooden structure located at La Encarnación square, in the old quarter of Seville, Spain. It was designed by the German architect Jürgen Mayer and completed in April 2011. It has dimensions of 150 by 70 metres (490 by 230 ft) and an approximate height of 26 metres (85 ft] and claims to be the largest wooden structure in the world. Its appearance, location, delays and cost overruns in construction resulted in much public controversy. The building is popularly known as Las Setas de la Encarnación (Incarnation's mushrooms).

Wonderful to see.
I was very interested in the history of the symbol, and particularly taken by your B&W images of the amazing Metropol Parasol, especially the first three #24.26 to #24.28.
Thanks for sharing.

Wonderfull Paul
I was there in November 2018 with MUCH better weather.
I recognize all the places. If only for that reminiscing I do enjoy the series and look forward to more.
I love the Metropol Parasol shots, It wasn't easy to get a decent shot, respecting the size and the construction. But you did well.

Excellent work Paul. Another vote for 24.26, but 24.29 is very high on my list as well.

Thanks Domien. The 16-35 ZA is a great asset for me (I almost always use it at 16 mm so might as well replace it with a prime) and certainly at these big structures.

I have looked inside, Ine. They sell nurdy games and stuff. No real magic to be found!
