Wonderful Heritage

SOL-50-A1. Fine art pictorial photograph showing a wonderful house which was built following the classic old style, known as Cape Dutch Architecture. In my opinion is a very humble and rustic beautiful style. This was at Stanford, Western Cape, South Africa, town that is for sure worthy to visit.

It could be obvious to a Spaniard with Andalusian roots that he would feel comfortable with the white of the facades and the well-kept gardens, but I admit that I love the differences, those roofs with a strong slope, that way of emphasizing the windows and doors, the absence of arches, and the not so rounded corners. Both styles are, in my opinion, a jewel of the past that I love to see how they successfully try to preserve as in Spain, as the culture they represent.
