Spring in Spain by MacKinley Helm

Spring in Spain by MacKinley Helm

Spain satnds at the crossroads of history.
Here among hillsides still rise the ancient
Arenas and soaringaqueducts of Rome. Here are the fantastic arabesques of mosque and place, remnants of the Moslem conquests ten centuries later.
