Walking down the back streets of old towns in Europe is one of my favorite things. This one is near Calle de las Sierpes (Serpent Steet -- named for its shape) in Sevilla. Calle Sierpes is the commercial street and it is filled with stores, cafes and action at all hours. Try to walk down Calle Sierpes after dinner and expect your short walk to take at least a half hour as people window shop and chat with neighbors.
So imagine my surprise to see this street nearby which was relatively quiet. I was attracted to it for the ornate work on the buildings including the tile, the ironwork on the balcony and stone streets. When seeing a street like this, I always think about the people who have walked those very steps and the secrets the street is keeping from the past.
