The Chapel of the Holy Cross
By 1231 the Mezquite had been reconsecrated as the Chapel of the Holy Cross (Ermita de la Santa Cruz) and was owned by the Knights of the Order of St John.
I don’t know what the cellar in what is currently known as the Mezquite de la Luz was originally used for – perhaps only storage, as I describe it here. But it still exists, and you can look down into it through a hole in the floor.
The door is roughly as I have it too. It is not possible to enter it, so other details are fanciful.

Since leaving the higher education sector I’ve been focussed on thinking about education more holistically – I’m particularly interested in the interface between education and media, but I want to understand better how we can bring our traditional educational institutions to embrace the possibilities that the network and media are opening up. We need to reinvent education to suit the nature of our working lives, and our need to engage in routine lifelong learning. I use my research and writing skills to explore these issues. I consult on education issues and assist postgraduate students with their theses.
As an artist, my new project is Mayor, a graphic novel set in thirteenth century Spain. You can find out more about these activities in my blog: geniwate.com.
