β€œUNESCO” 🏰 - Quedlinburg!! ❀️ 🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁 Thank-you so kindly for sharing this with us, and also for tagging travel_2_germany!! πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ @tyberio7 🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁 #Repost from @tyberio7 β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’ Castle Quedlinburg in Renaissance style from XVI century on the site of the old fortress from X century. Oslo see the characteristic towers of the church of Saint Servatius from the XI century. Saxony - Anhalt. Germany πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ 🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁 "Situated on a sandstone cliff, the more than a thousand year old Romanesque collegiate church St. Servatius towers as an imposing landmark over the city. The flat-ceiling basilica, dedicated in the year 1129, was preceded by earlier structures. The monumental sandstone edifice manifests not only in its facade but also in the ornamentation of its interior walls and capitals strong Lombardic influences. The Gothic form of the choir erected over the crypt can only be seen from the outside of the building. In the interior of the church, the attempt was made to recreate an impression of purely Romanesque architecture through the addition of an apsis wall. The interior space is articulated in accordance with the lower Saxon alternation of columns and pillars as a principle of construction.” β€œIn the west, the emperorΒ’s loge is the demarcation defining secular and consecrated space within in the church. In the east, a stairway leads up to the choir and to the vault rooms where the famous collection of the Quedlinburg church treasures have been on display since 1993. In the crypt beneath the choir are the royal graves of the first German King, Henry the1st, and his wife Mathilde. . Facing the church is a building that houses the former residential, representational and the functional rooms of the abbesses and personnel of the Quedlinburg ladiesΒ’ collegiate chapter. This structure underwent its final architectural transformation into a Renaissance castle in the 16th and 17th centuries and now houses the castle museum under the direction of the Quedlinburg municipal museums.β€œ (http://www.quedlinburg.de/en/castlehill_.html) 🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁 @galerie_quedlinburg @hoteltilia @mdr_san

✩ 21 Febbraio 2018 ✩ πŸ“· Photo by : @pitusacas πŸ“Toledo, Spain πŸ“Successively a Roman municipium, the capital of the Visigothic Kingdom, a fortress of the Emirate of Cordoba, an outpost of the Christian kingdoms fighting the Moors and, in the 16th century, the temporary seat of supreme power under Charles V, Toledo is the repository of more than 2,000 years of history. Its masterpieces are the product of heterogeneous civilizations in an environment where the existence of three major religions – Judaism, Christianity and Islam – was a major factor. πŸ“· Please have a look at the artist's gallery for more great shots! πŸ‘Š β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬ β“’ β“ž ⓝ β“– β“‘ ⓐ β“£ β“€ β“› ⓐ β“£ β“˜ β“ž ⓝ πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ† Follow & tag Β @TOP_UNESCO_PHOTO Hashtag Β #TOP_UNESCO_PHOTO Admin Β @balabha Group Β @TOP_GROUP_PHOTO πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ† β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬β–¬ #landscapehunter #spain #landscapelovers #landscape #top_group_photo #top_world_photo #top_hdr_photo #beniculturali30 #unescoheritage #unescoheritagesite #unescosite #unescoworldheritagesite #culturacolectiva Β #unesco #turism #geo #art Β #masterpiece Β #artoftheday #patrimoniounesco #worldheritage #unite4heritage #igworlclub #LiveTravelChannels #TheBestDestinations #Places_Wow Β #BBCTravel Β #ig_photostars #ig_mood
