palacio longoria

as alligator pilasters cling on to the back entablature of this singular modernista specimen in Madrid,

other parts of the façade are ornamented with creamy swirls of sculptural adornment

and accentuated with intricate metalwork...

not quite as fantastical nor as muscularly portentous as Gaudi's creations, but more luscious wedding cake art nouveau - an all-out visual ambrosia to a fault...
