Campo del principe, Granada

This is one of a trio of special watercolours i made in Granada in about 1989  .

The subject is  the “Cristo de los Faroles” in Campo del Principe square . This spot has a sacred importance for Granadinos being reputedly the place where San Cecilio {St Cecil} was martyred  .

Of course i didnt know about that when i made this watercolour . Nor did i know that the Realejo was the ancient “Jewish quarter “of Granada . I think that the old church of San Cecilio may have been the site of a synagogue .
