Bayne’s three months in Spain, January through March 1865, took him to many sites that had been damaged in recent civil disturbances and conflicts with France. He seems to have had several goals in mind on his Spanish tour. Bayne’s drawings and notebook entries about the damaged state of Lerida Cathedral, Veruela Monastery and Poblet Convent show his concern that he believed these monuments were in danger of being destroyed by warfare and neglect.

In Leon, he recorded the stained glass windows. His brother, Robert Turnill Bayne was a glazier in England, and this may have influenced Bayne’s choice of subject here.

In addition to the many Gothic and Romanesque monuments, Bayne also sketched Moorish architectural monuments and decorative details in Seville, Granada, and Cordoba.
