Loaves and Fishes for Me Please

As you leave the main body of Seville Cathedral and enter the side chamber where they now keep the silver and papal bling, you pass under an archway whose interior surface is covered with plaster reliefs. Looking at them more closely, I couldn't help wondering if the room the archway led to was originally used for a purpose other than display. Could it once have been a canteen for monks or worshippers and were those decorations the world's first ever illustrated menu:


  1. Beautiful cathedral isn't it? Did you like Seville?

  2. Seville was beautiful, I thought. We were slightly flattened by the heat though - we might go back when it's winter and see what it's like then.
