“I have seen dawn and sunset on moors and windy hills coming in solemn beauty like slow old tunes of Spain.” – John Edward Masefield
The Rich History of Spain
Guadalajara is located in Castilla–La Mancha not far from Madrid straddling the Henares River. It the region’s second most populated municipality. It is home to one of the oldest monasteries in Spain – the Romanesque Monastery of Cister of Monsalud, and also features one of the most amazing mausoleoums in Europe, the Pantheon of the Condesa de la Vega del Pozo.
Pantheon of the Duchess of Sevillano
The thrill of shooting the Pantheon of the Duchess of Sevillano was only surpassed by the private tour of the majestic toomb located in the interior of the building, where photographs are not allowed. We were also able to get some drone shots of the exterior and roof during the day which came out quite well.
A 45 minute drive then took us to the Monastary of Monsalud in Córcoles which is as beautiful as it is old. It was one of the most important Monastaries of the Middle Ages in the Iberian Peninsula andtThe first reliable document where it appears dates from 1167.
