This little “Giralda” built in the Catalan town called L’Arboç was projected by Joan Roquer i Marí after a trip in Andalusia. He loved Andalusian architecture and decided to copy this Spanish style in his home. The Giralda was built between 1877 and 1889 designed by Roquer although measures half the height of the real Giralda of Seville. If you visit it you will also find a replica of the Court of the Lions of the Alhambra of Granada.

The decoration of the building was designed from several photographies taken by Roquer in Seville and therefore we have a lot of mosaics which can be admire in this mathematical post:
