Motherload of Ruins in Palma!!

Check THIS one out! Isn't it delightful? This is in the old part of Palma. It must have been a massive home or block of beautiful apartments. There are so many morsels to look at...need to zoom in on a few details.

architectural details like molding, elaborate ceilings, intricate staircases...

...what is most interesting to me with this complex of ruins is the depth. I have for the most part up 'til now I have been focusing on two-dimensional facades, but the cutting in on various angles and levels of floors is really wonderful here. Reminds me of an artist I love, Gordon Matta Clark.
