The photogenic Plaza de la Quintana

Google+ print cuaderno de viaje

The bareness of Plaza de la Quintana acquires special value with the effect of the light on the stone. Midday enables you to photograph the granite in all of its hardness. At dusk the Cathedral’s shadow is projected against the wall of the Convent of Antealtares. And the nighttime lighting gives the surface an almost aquatic look, like a silent fishbowl. You can also take vignette-like photos from the arches of Casa da Conga.
