This Beautiful Hotel Will Take Your Breath Away

Hotel Marqués de Riscal in Spain, for those who like me adore great wines and contemporary architecture is a name that is a myth. The wine city hotel, restaurant and museum- designed by Frank Gehry next to their winery is one of the absolute masterpieces of the 20th century. Bolder than the Guggenheim museum in Bilbao and the Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, bolder because it’s varicoloured titanium volutes disturb the old peace of Rioja, its vineyards, the old villages with cathedral and bell tower, the stone walls and the curvy roads. Like light in the darkness, like something new arriving in the old countryside, wonderful!
