HISTORY : Chantal Comte called this marvel «La Tour de l’Or blanc» in honour of Seville, the starting point of Christopher Columbus’s journey to bring back treasures from the new world. On the banks of the Guadalquivir in Spain, a 13th century Almohad tower stands like a nostalgic sentinel, in the beautiful Andalusian light. It is a poetic and historical link to the far-off islands described by Saint-John Perse: “The first solitary islands, round islands ringed by infinite space like stars...The sea between the islands is lustfully round...”
