Over the high altar of Sant’Andrea al Quirinale (Church of Saint Andrew’s at the Quirinal) is an oil painting of the Martyrdom of Saint Andrew (1668) by Guillaume Courtois (French) which shows Andrew tied to the diagonals of the form of the cross on which he was crucified. . . #basilicapapaledisantamariamaggiore #churchofsantamariamaggiore #basilica #papalmajorbasilica #catholicmarianchurch #romanarchitecture #baroquearchitecture #unescoworldheritagesite #travelgram #wanderer #wanderlust #vacation #italiandiaries #visitrome #romegram #romestagram #romeitaly #followme #travelling #visititaly #heritage #ancientarchitecture #romanhistory #italy #architecturephotography #sculptures
Above the entrance door of Sant’Andrea al Quirinale (Church of Saint Andrew’s at the Quirinal), there is a coat of arms with an inscription that says: “Prince Camillo Pamphili, son of Innocent X‘s brother, built this church to St. Andrew the Apostle.” . . #basilicapapaledisantamariamaggiore #churchofsantamariamaggiore #basilica #papalmajorbasilica #catholicmarianchurch #romanarchitecture #baroquearchitecture #unescoworldheritagesite #travelgram #wanderer #wanderlust #vacation #italiandiaries #visitrome #romegram #romestagram #romeitaly #followme #travelling #visititaly #heritage #ancientarchitecture #romanhistory #italy #architecturephotography #sculptures
Some more namesakes that both have a quite similar tower I think. St. Salvator in Munich (consecrated in 1494 as cemetery church of Our Dear Lady / it's an greek orthodox church since 1829) St. Salvator in Mainburg (consecrated in 1723) *** *** Wieder einmal zwei Namenskollegen, die einen recht ähnlichen Turm haben, wie ich finde. St. Salvator in München (geweiht 1494 als Friedhofskirche des Liebfrauendoms / seit 1829 griechisch-orthodox) St. Salvator in Mainburg (geweiht 1723) *** *** #ChurchArchitecture #ChurchesOfEurope #Architecture #ArchitectureDetails #ArchitectureHistory #HistoricBuildings #BeautifulChurches #ChurchPhotography #ArchitectureLovers #ArchitecturalDesign #ArchitecturalPhotography #ChurchCrawling #ChurchesOfInstagram #ArchitecturalPhotography #Namesakes #StSalvator #Munich #München #Mainburg #Hallertau #GothicArchitecture #BaroqueArchitecture

This beautiful doorway leads into the famous Loreta complex located in Hradčany, Prague. Its multitude of holy buildings, sacred shrines, and artefacts have made it a major destination for pilgrims. Developed in the 17th century, its facade is a very good example of the baroque style typical of the period. . Baroque architecture was closely associated with the counter-reformation, and became increasingly widespread throughout Bohemia as a result of the Thirty Years War, which re-established the primacy of the catholic church in the Czech Crown Lands. . . . #Hradcany #Loreta #VisitPrague #LoretanskeNamesti #BestPragueDoors #DoorsOfInstagram #Churches #PraguePhotographer #Czech_Insta #Praguestagram #History #ChurchesOfInstagram #17thCentury #Baroque #HistoryLovers #Rococo #BaroqueArchitecture #ThirtyYearsWar #CounterReformation #World_DoorsAndWindows

The question how the most majestic library possible could look like might be answered better than anything else by the Grand Bibliotheque Richelieu, a marvelous Beaux-Arts masterpiece of 19th century european classical bliss. Errected in the heart of Paris in the typical spirit of its time, the Gilded Age, lasting from around 1870-1900, the Richelieu Library served and still serves at the National Library of France, named after the Cardinal Richelieu, one of europe's most successful generals, but also a high ranking politican and influental clergyman and priest at the same time, in early 17th century France. This post shall also introduce a new series of the most majestic and sophisticated libraries of europe. . #beauty #beautiful #aesthetic #aesthetics #architecture #architectural #medievalstyle #medievalarchitecture #medievalworld #medieval #middleages #christianity #faith #god #baroque #baroquearchitecture #baroquepearls #baroquestyle #rennaissance #18thcenturyfashion #paris #parisienne #napoleon #secondempire #classicalarchitecture #classicism #europe #europeanarchitecture

A glorious, illuminated St. Paul’s in the twilight 💙 Architect Sir Christopher Wren’s most famous work, it was completed in 1711 to replace the cathedral that burnt down in the Great Fire of London, but there’s been a church on the site for over 1,400 years! • • • #stpaulscathedral @stpaulscathedrallondon #beautifulchurches #londonchurches #cityoflondon #sirchristopherwren #baroquearchitecture #touristdays #londonbylondoners #beautifullondon #londonadventures #londonarchitecture #londoncityworld #lovelondon #instalondon #visitlondon #ig_history #lovehistory #historynerd #thisislondon #backpackerlife #ig_london #instarchitecture #londonist #timeoutlondon #instalondon #tourguidelife #bluebadgetouristguide
The Trevi Fountain by night. The fountain is in a small piazza, and takes up about half of the space. We walked through some small streets which opened out into the piazza with the fountain! It was like BANG! Here is one of the most famous fountains in the world! It is HUGE. An estimated 3,000 euros are thrown into the fountain each day, which are collected and used to help the poorest members of society. #trevifountain #baroquefountain #rome
BAROQUE ARCHITECTURE: Cathedral of Saint Virgin Mary, Minsk, Belarus – May 2014. Built in 1710 during the Polish rule, this Baroque cathedral served as a church for the Jesuits. In 1793, after the Russian conquest of the Belarusian part of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, the Jesuits were banned. The Cathedral was heavily damaged in a fire in 1797, but was later fully restored.  #baroque #baroquearchitecture #architecture #architectural #baroquestyle #architecturephotography #architecturelovers #church #architetturabarocca #barocco #minsk #belarus #minskchurch #cathedralofsaintvirginmary #baroquechurch

Interval time at Bach's sublime masterpiece, St. Matthew Passion. The venue is St John's Co-cathedral, Valletta. It was completed in 1577, but the decoration is slightly later, baroque. The whole design scheme seems so unified and intact, floors, walls, ceilings, chapels etc. And it contains not one, but 2 paintings by Caravaggio. Both were commissioned for this cathedral and still hang here today! This evening was undoubtedly the highlight of my time at the Valletta Baroque Music Festival. #valletta #malta #architecture #architecturelovers #baroque #baroquearchitecture #baroquemusic #bach #caravaggio #visitmalta @vallettabaroquefestival

It remains open to debate whether Friedrich Nietzsche remains to be right when he said that an artist has no other home in Europe expect Paris, yet what he was hinting is not part of any riddle, and it is one of many views that I bring you today that visualise this in one of the most gracious ways. You are looking at the left side of the facade of the Opera Garnier with the gilded sculpture called "Harmony" by Charles Gumery, crafted together with the rest of the Palais Garnier/Opera Garnier in 1865. . #beauty #beautiful #aesthetic #aesthetics #architecture #architectural #medievalstyle #medievalarchitecture #medievalworld #medieval #middleages #christianity #faith #god #baroque #baroquearchitecture #baroquepearls #baroquestyle #rennaissance #18thcenturyfashion #paris #parisienne #napoleon #secondempire #classicalarchitecture #classicism #europe #europeanarchitecture

The baroque palace Portheimka was build in the 1720’s by the architect Kilian Ignaz Dientzenhofer for himself and his family as summer residence. Typically built by wealthy aristocratic families. Now there is museum of contemporary glass art. _______________🖼️______________ Why should you see: Opulent Marble Hall is decorated by a giant Teresian pendant chandelier hanging under a splendid original ceiling painting by Václav Vavřinec Reiner. _______________🏛️______________ Some history: ⛲ In 1750’s, the summer residence became the property of the Buquoy family who build a rococo park in the original garden and added side wings, which was taken down when building a nearby church. ⚒️ Later the residence was purchased by the industrialist Porges von Portheim. In the garden, they established a factory to produce calico (special cotton fabric), 🎻 Porges organizef nights of chamber music held in the marble hall where the young Antonín Dvořák demonstrated his musical talent. 🏦 Portheimka remained in the family’s possession until the 1940’s when it was nationalized. Later the building was included amongst protected historical sites and started to serve as a gallery. . . . . . . #prague #praguestagram #prag #praga #visitcz #loveprague #praguehistory #localguide #praguelove #praguetrip #praguetravel #bezoektsjechie #aroundprague #traveljournal #prague2019 #praguelife #pragueguide #privatetour #instaprague #artprague #pragueart #baroquearchitecture #baroquepearls

So many questions about these beautiful bedside lamps. I bought them from the auction when I gave birth to Amelia back in 2014. I have no idea where it is from originally. So sorry I couldn’t help more😢
