Greetings All,
Just in case you still haven't come across it, you can catch up at http://www.rtve.es/alacarta/todos/temas/documentales.html . While we rightly rave 'bout the Iberian Peninsula's amazing fauna 'n' flora, we mustn't forget the equally amazing history surrounding us and which is all-too-often taken for granted.

Not being a sociologist or anthropologist, Technopat has no interest whatsoever in the religious aspects of the subject :technodevil: but he cannot help but acknowledge the importance of religion throughout Europe's history and its artistic aportación (En. anyone?), be it in classical music or in architecture.

Well worth watching, if only to see some of those great gargoyles and other irreverent artistic expressions the masons got away with  :angel:

Technopat's disclaimer: If this posting seems over the top and/or gets your goat (Sp. anyone?), please accept my apologies and don't take it personally - it's just my instinctive tendency to put my foot in it whenever/wherever possible. See also:
