More sobering than silly, the outside of this church in Toledo is hung with chains that were the shackles of freed galley slaves
I guess tomorrow's equivalent would be a wall of credit cards . .

Excellent detail, framing is superb. Thank you for the explanation I do not know, though I visited San Juan de los Reyes in Toledo.
Have a good day.

A fine angle and capture of the church. The chains make a distinctive decoration that is unusual in my limited experience.

Wow, that's quite amazing. I can only imagine the stories behind every one of those shackles.
