Alentejo - Monsaraz

 

Perched above the Alqueva dam, Monsaraz benefits from a strategic location and a defensive potential that has always been recognized, as the Roman, Visigothic and Celtic passages attest.

Conquered to the Moors, in the reign of D. Dinis and delivered its defense to the Templars, it is this military order that adds to it, in the 14th century, the walls and the castle from where, even today one can look at neighboring Spain or extend the view across the great Alentejo plains.

With its narrow cobbled streets, which meander among ancient houses with white walls, it offers those who pass by there a very authentic feel of an ancient and medieval Portugal.

Alentejo - Monsaraz

Empoleirada por cima da albufeira do Alqueva, Monsaraz benificia duma localização estratégica e de um potencial defensivo desde sempre reconhecido, como a passagem de romanos , visigodos e celtas o atestam.

 

Conquistada aos mouros , no reinado de D. Dinis e entregue a sua defesa aos Templários, é esta ordem militar que lhe acrescenta, no século 14, as muralhas e o castelo de onde, ainda hoje se pode olhar para a vizinha Espanha ou estender a vista através das grandes planícies Alentejanas.

 

Com suas ruas estreitas de paralelepípedos, que serpenteiam entre casas antigas de paredes brancas, oferece a quem por lá passa uma sensação, muito autentica, de um Portugal antigo e medieval.

Princes Street is one of the major thoroughfares in central Edinburgh, Scotland, and the main shopping street in the capital. It is the southernmost street of Edinburgh's New Town, stretching around 1 mile (1.6 km) from Lothian Road in the west, to Leith Street in the east. The street is mostly closed to private cars, with public transport given priority. The street has virtually no buildings on the south side, allowing panoramic views of the Old Town, Edinburgh Castle, and the valley between.

Victoria Street was built between 1829-34 as part of a series of improvements to the Old Town, with the aim of improving access around the city. Previously, access from the Grassmarket to the Lawnmarket was via the West Bow, a very steeply sloped and narrow lane. The new street was planned to demolish much of the old West Bow, and provide a broad sweeping link to the newly built George IV Bridge.

 

It was designed by architect Thomas Hamilton, one of the leading lights in transforming the city with neo-classical buildings and much influenced by the architecture of ancient Greece. However it was stipulated that the buildings associated with the new street should be ‘Old Flemish’ in style, and draw inspiration from the details on Heriot’s Hospital.

One of my favorite things about visiting Michigan City is traveling by train to get there. Both Amtrak and The South Shore Line offer passenger to Michigan City from Chicago. As the South Shore Line passes through Michigan City, it "street runs" down the middle of 11th Street, making for some fun possibilities for photos.

Andenkenläden gibt es in London zuhauf, auch die Strassen rund um das Britische Museum bilden dabei keine Ausnahme. Kleiner Tipp, je weiter man von den Sehenswürdigkeiten des Stadtzentrums weg ist, desto billiger wird es.

 

Souvenir shops abound in London, the streets around the British Museum are no exception. A little tip, the further one is away from the attractions of the city center, the cheaper it is.

Stirling ( Scots: Stirlin; Scottish Gaelic: Sruighlea) is a city in central Scotland. The market town, surrounded by rich farmland, grew up connecting the royal citadel, the medieval old town with its merchants and tradesmen, the bridge and the port. Located on the River Forth, Stirling is the administrative centre for the Stirling council area, and is traditionally the county town of Stirlingshire. Proverbially it is the strategically important "Gateway to the Highlands".
