O objetivo aqui era mostrar um pouco mais de detalhe das ruas de Valeta... Em algumas partes são ruas muito inclinadas (a descer ou a subir)... E muitas delas têm escadas. Estas escadas serviam para “facilitar” a movimentação do Cavaleiros da Ordem, com as suas armaduras muito pesadas. Neste momento, deve dar algum jeito para quem problemas de joelhos... Mas isso já é outro assunto. Apesar de dar para ver as fotos... É pena o corte que o Instagram faz... E acabo por ver o meu “trabalho” de composição um bocado desperdiçado... Mas pronto... A ideia não se perde... E 80% da imagem ainda está visível. • • #malta#malte#мальта#مالطا#马耳他#マルタ#valletta#valeta#europe#visitmalta#lovemalta#travel#cityscape#city#unesco#worldheritage#instatravel#tourist#architecture#instaphoto#nikon#nikonphotography#nikonportugal#nikond5200#d5200#photography#hobby#luismonteirophotography22

The St. Gallen cathedral covered with snow. 雪のザンクト・ガレン大聖堂。雪が降ってからは、大聖堂周辺に行かずに横の通りからチラッと見て通るだけだったので、少し雪が片付いてしまいましたが、今日になって近寄ってみました。夫曰く「地球温暖化の影響でスイスでも雪が降らなくなっているから、楽しまないといけない」そうなので、雪を愛でて暮らしたいと思います。写真には入っていませんが、クリスマス前から街を素敵に飾ってくれていた星型イルミネーションの撤収作業が今朝から始まったようで、少し寂しいです。 #switzerland#cathedral#stgallencathedral#snow#winter#worldheritage#スイス生活#スイス#ザンクトガレン#ザンクトガレン大聖堂#雪#冬#世界遺産

Bilbao - Spain 念願のビルバオグッゲンハイム美術館へ。 久しぶりのフランクゲイリーの建築、素晴らしかった!2年前にロンドンのギャラリーで観たリチャードセラの作品が観れたり、ジャコメッティの企画展も観れたり最高の時間でした☺️ そういえばzozoの社長さんが123億で購入したバスキアの別の作品をも展示してありました。展示作品も豊富で見応えありです。 元々は鉄鋼の街で、それら工場の跡地が再開発で近代的になってきているよう。そんな中、世界遺産にもなっている世界最古の運搬橋ビスカヤ橋もまだ現役で動いていたりして、バランスの良い街だなぁと思いました。ぜひまた違う季節に訪れたい街ビルバオ。 次はサンセバスチャンまで足を伸ばして、たらふくバスク地方の美食を堪能したい✨ #bilbao#spain#museoguggenheim#frankogehry#architecture#museum#worldheritage#bridge#puppy#contemporaryart#vizcayabridge#richardserra#giacometti#basquiat

Valletta ist kleinste EU-Haup
[X] UNESCO Weltkulturerbe - 🇲🇹 - City of Valletta Valletta ist kleinste EU-Hauptstadt mit einer Fläche von 0,840.981km² und ca. 5.700 Einwohnern. Sie liegt an der Nordostküste der Insel und befindet sich auf einer Landzunge, die von den beiden größten Naturhäfen des Mittelmeers umschlossen ist. Valletta gilt als eine der historisch am besten gesicherten Städte der Welt, denn sie wird von einem Ring aus Bastionen umgeben. Beeindruckt war ich vorallem von der St. John’s Co-Cathedral, die vorallem von ihnen mit ihrem gefühlt komplett vergoldeten Interieur überzeugte. Ebenfalls beeindruckend war der Blick durch die steilen Straßenschluchten der Stadt. Vom Upper Barrakka Gardens bietet sich zudem ein toller Blick in den großen Hafen Maltas, sowie das Fort St. Angelo. Seit 1980 ist die Stadt aufgrund ihres kulturellen Reichtums als  Gesamtmonument in die Liste des UNESCO-Welterbes eingetragen. #Sightseeing#UNESCOWeltkulturerbe#UNESOWelterbe#UNESCOworldheritage#UNESCOworldheritagesite#UNESCO#Welterbe#Weltkulturerbe#worldheritage#CityofValletta#Valletta#LaValletta#TheTritonFountain#PjazzaTeatruRjal#RoyalOperaHouse#StJohnsCoCathedral#UpperBarrakkaGardens#SiegeBellMemorial#Malta#VisitMalta#Groundhopping#Kultur#Landscape#travel#traveltheworld#travelgram#travelphotography#travelblogger#traveler@unesco@unescoworldheritage

happy smiles in the back alleys of bukhara. similar to samarkand, it is widely believed that persian-speaking tajik people form the majority of the city's population. decades of uzbek nationalism and aggressive uzbekization mean that official statistics have often under-reported the numbers of ethnic tajiks in the country, where pressures of cultural assimilation lead to many tajiks identifying as uzbeks in official documents. . . . #kyhinuzbekistan#uzbekistan#bukhara#buxoro#people#children#portrait#unesco#worldheritage#openuzbekistan#visituzbekistan#centralasia#thestans#silkroad#indyguide#travelasia#tlasia#wanderlust#worldnomads#natgeotravel#backpacking#lonelyplanet#bbctravel#cntraveler#beautifuldestinations#awesomeearth#seetheworld#atlasobscura#travelmadedifferent#ikutcarakita

Yippee ki-yay 🤠 Skipping to the next POI in an alleyway. I traveled straight from Paris to Florence by train and as soon as I stepped out of the Santa Maria Novella Train Station, I felt this wave of relaxation and calmness. Nothing feels rushed in Florence, which is one of the reasons I enjoy coming back to this place.

At one point, this architectural treasure was the largest church in the world. From Donatello's, Pisano's, and Michelangelo's statues, to Verrocchio's and Ghiberti's master metalworking, and of course, Brunelleschi's magnificent dome and Vasari's frescos, these beautiful buildings are a one-of-a-kind trinity of artistic splendor. Even the infamous Leonardo Da Vinci had a part to play as an apprentice in Verrocchio's workshop during the final completion of the bronze orb. 🖱 The taller, square structure is the campanile, aka Giotto's Bell Tower, and at the very right of the picture is The Battistero San Giovanni or Saint John's Baptistery, which is actually the oldest of the three. When you travel here, make sure to come with ample memory-card space, a bit of patience, and attentive eyes. Quiet curiosity is rewarded handsomely. #IlDuomo#Renaissanceart#FlorenceItaly

The SPOT ⚪️ In my previous posts of Brunelleschi's dome, you'll notice a big golden ball perched right at the top of the lantern. This orb was completed by Florence-born painter, sculptor, and goldsmith, Andrea del Verrocchio, in 1471. Only the finest quality copper sheets were used, which were then hammered together into a perfect spherical shape and finally gilded. It was lifted to the top of the dome using various weight-bearing machines Brunelleschi invented while he was the provveditore, or superintendent, of the main cupola project. ⚡️ What you might be wondering is why the heck did she post a picture of herself on the floor kneeling on some white circle. Well, once upon a time in 1601, this white circle was where that great golden ball fell to the ground after it was struck by lightning. (Keep in mind, this ball is 4000+ lbs.) Since it is basically a giant lighting rod (made of copper), it supposedly had already been struck 27 times since it was first put in place. And when it finally fell at the turn of the 17th century, it slammed into the ground so hard that the violent tremble was felt all over Florence. Thankfully, no one was injured in the crash and this marble marker was subsequently installed to serve as a reminder of that disastrous event. Fortunately today, preventative measures have been taken to ensure history will not repeat itself. *swipe to see gold ball* #lightningstrikes#historicmarker#travelsecrets

If you light a lantern for another, it will also brighten your own way ~Nichiren
If you light a lantern for another, it will also brighten your own way ~Nichiren 🏮 After spending nearly two decades of his life on the project, Brunelleschi, unfortunately, did not live to see the completion of his magnificent dome. Though, after his death, another prominent architect was entrusted the title of capomastro or master builder. This man's name was Michelozzo Michelozzi-- a Florence native and trusted personal architect to the distinguished Medici family. He faithfully completed Brunelleschi's decorative marble "lantern," which is not only a sublime crowning addition to the structure, but actually a necessary weight that pushes down into the dome, holding the entire edifice in place. Once you climb all the way to the very top of Brunelleschi's dome, you'll be walking on this lantern and you'll be able to see all of Florence. It's an unforgettable sight--one that gifts even the most novice photographers with postcard perfect snapshots. ✨ There are a lot of unknown facts--secrets, if you will--about medieval buildings in Europe and I have a feeling that there's more to this lantern regarding its historical use and symbolism. Any lantern, even one at the top of a dome, is made to allow light to shine through it. For such a tiny space inside this lantern, and being that there are tall windows around the entire structure, it is clearly made so light can transmit through. But what would the light be brightening up I wonder? #Italianarchitecture#lanterns#Renaissanceperiodization

Come fly with me, we'll fly, we'll fly away ğŸŽ™ ✈️ Looking at Flying Mercury by Giambologna--bronze (1580) ☁️ From Greek mythology, he is known as Hermes, and from Roman, he is called Mercury. A guide to the underworld, a messenger for the Gods, a patron for travelers, merchants, and even athletes and outlaws, Mercury, son of Jupiter (Zeus), was and continues to be an important figure in Ancient Greek and Roman teachings. Giambologna’s most revered work portrays Mercury in action, ready to take flight with the help of Zephyr, God of the West Wind. Similar to superhero gadgets, he has with him three tools to assist in his duties--the first, the golden Talaria or winged sandals, the second, the Petasos or winged cap, and third, the Caduceus, a staff interlaced with two serpents which is also, as expected, winged. 🐍 Today, we are familiar with the caduceus as it is commonly used in logos by commercial and federal health organizations (often confused with the Rod of Asclepius, which possesses a single serpent only), such as Medicaid and the US Army Medical Corps. And interestingly enough, the history of this symbol, though most notably associated with Hermes in Greek mythology, actually goes further back in time to Sumerian mythology, around 3000 BC. While there are many conflicting ideals on the history and use of the Caduceus, it is one of many symbols that has found new meaning among new generations throughout time. #bronzesculpture#mythology

if you think the registan's monumental and grandiose exterior is out of this world, wait till you set your eyes on the interior of the grand mosque at the tilya-kori madrasa. . "wowww!" . this view of the mihrab was the first to greet me as i stepped into the mosque. that exclamation of mine couldn't help but slip out of my mouth as i gazed upon the magnificence of the sight in front of me. stupendously gilded and splendidly ornamented, the astounding grandeur of the mosque's prayer hall literally pushes all superlatives to the next level. never doubt the limits of human ingenuity and creativity; despite being a few hundred years old, the registan is undoubtedly one of the finest pieces of architecture not only in the islamic world but in recorded history. . . . #kyhinuzbekistan#uzbekistan#samarkand#samarqand#registan#madrasa#mosque#masjid#islamicarchitecture#unesco#worldheritage#indyguide#openuzbekistan#centralasia#thestans#silkroad#travelasia#tlasia#tlpicks#worldnomads#passionpassport#natgeotravel#backpacking#lonelyplanet#bbctravel#cntraveler#beautifuldestinations#atlasobscura#travelmadedifferent#ikutcarakita

few cities in the world evoke such vivid imaginations and conjure up images of riches and power at the very mention of their names. several of these spring to mind: timbuktu, zanzibar, isfahan, constantinople. and then along came samarkand. long the poster child of a prosperous silk road city, samarkand epitomizes the biggest and greatest of what the capital of an empire should look like. grandiose timurid era monuments line the old city, designated as a unesco world heritage site since 2001. at the historic heart of samarkand stands the majestic registan, the undisputed icon and most recognized landmark of uzbekistan and all of central asia. successively built between the 15th and 17th centuries, three monumental madrasas flank a public square, and it was here that people gathered to hear royal proclamations and watch public executions. rise and arrive early (any time before 8) to beat the crowd and to have the place all to yourself, save for a few enthusiastic and motivated souls. watch the soft morning rays cast beautiful shadows on each alcove, portal, and vault of its intricately tiled façades, and this might be the most beautiful sight you have laid your eyes on in a while. . . . #kyhinuzbekistan#uzbekistan#samarkand#samarqand#registan#madrasa#citysquare#oldcity#islamicarchitecture#unesco#worldheritage#openuzbekistan#visituzbekistan#centralasia#thestans#silkroad#indyguide#travelasia#worldnomads#passionpassport#tlasia#tlpicks#natgeotravel#backpacking#lonelyplanet#bbctravel#cntraveler#atlasobscura#travelmadedifferent#ikutcarakita
