Fortress city is a desert jewel

Greg Dlx brings us a fabulous desert city, with a beautiful set of gates in an impressive wall. The color scheme catches the eye, but it’s the details evoking the architecture of the Middle East which encourage you to look closer. The sand dunes created with curved tan pieces are also a lovely touch.

Gates of Petraea - Front - Right

When opened, the gates allow access to a nicely-built section of the city itself. I like the way the stables and other buildings follow the curve of the main wall.

Gates of Petraea - Back

After our recent post mentioning a relative lack of Islamic-style architecture in LEGO, this answers the brief. Let’s see even more of this kind of building please.
