Prescissa in Granada

Most people travel to Granada to see the Alhambra, where exquisite Arabic calligraphy can be seen. Few people realise that there is no less exquisite Western calligraphy to be seen in that city.
There is a cathedral there and next to it a little museum, where some mediaeval manuscripts are exhibited. One of them presents excellent textura prescissa, another no less excellent textura quadrata.
