"Portara", temple of Apollo at Naxos (Cyclades, Greece). The Portara, or the Great Door, is essentially a massive marble doorway. Around the year 530 B.C when Naxos was at its peak of glory, the then ruler, Lygdamis wanted to build a magnificent building. He ordered for a massive temple to be built but when a war broke out between Naxos and Samos, the work stopped abruptly. After that, Lygdamis was overthrown in 506 BC and the temple, which was supposed to be at least a hundred feet tall, was never completed. Today all that remains of that temple is the Portara. It is believed that this temple was to be built in the honor of Apollo, the Greek God who protected music and poets. Proof of this lies in the fact that the temple faces in the direction of Delos, which is believed to be Apollo's birthplace. 🔹 "Portara", tempio di Apollo a Naxos (Cicladi, Grecia). La Portara, o Grande Porta, è essenzialmente un'enorme porta di marmo. Intorno all'anno 530 a.C. quando Naxos era al suo culmine della gloria, l'allora sovrano, Ligdami volle costruire un magnifico edificio. Ordinò di costruire un enorme tempio, ma allo scoppiare di una guerra tra Naxos e Samos, il lavoro si interruppe bruscamente. Dopo di ciò, Ligdami fu rovesciato nel 506 a.C. e il tempio non fu mai completato. Oggi tutto ciò che rimane dell'edificio è la Portara. Si ritiene che questo tempio dovesse essere costruito in onore di Apollo, il dio greco che proteggeva la musica e la poesia. Prova di ciò sta nel fatto che il tempio si affaccia in direzione di Delos, che si crede sia il luogo di nascita di Apollo. 📷 Photo by @a.laurareinert 👉 Tag 🔹 🔸 🔹 🔸 🔹 #historical #archaeologicalsite #oldbuilding #visit #historicalbuilding #historynerd #historian #pillars #archeology #archaeology

Link in Bio ------------------- Mapo Hall, Ibadan . . It may not look like it, but this too is one of the oldest buildings in Nigeria. Built in 1929, Mapo Hall has witnessed 87 years of Nigerian history from its vantage point at Mapo Hill summit, the highest point in the city of Ibadan. Designed by the British Engineer Robert Taffy Jones, this sprawling edifice is one of the most impressive structures in Ibadan, towering over the metropolis with its huge stone pillars and Victorian architecture. Mapo Hall was originally constructed for administrative purposes and public hearings. Nowadays, especially since its renovation in 2006, it is as a conference location and tourist destination, with its own in-house mini-museum and an impressive hallway portrait display of all past and present Olubadan of Ibadan. #historicalbuilding #ibadan #historyfacts #historicalnigeria
1881 Heritage, Tsim Sha Tsui - Hong Kong Dulunya tempat ini adalah markas besarnya HK Marine Police. Dibangun pada awal tahun 1800-an dan masih terawat dengan baik samapai sekarang. Sekarang tempat ini beralih fungsi menjadi shopping mall dan juga hotel. Tetapi beberapa bangunan lama seperti bangunan pemadam kebakaran dan juga time ball tower masih bisa kita lihat di tempat ini #tsimshatsui #1881heritage #historicalbuilding #historicalplace #buildings #kowloon #hongkong #city #cityexplore #explorehongkong #mieejourney

The hardest part a juggler must learn to do is to see things without looking at them. • 100% of your focus should be always on the balance and let your brain take care of the rest. • Come and be amazed by our talented performers in the company of none other than Henry VIII himself.

A little piece of history. 🌟
The beautiful Chester Cathedral is steeped in history, founded as a Benedictine abbey in 1092 parts of this building can still be seen today. In 1250 it was rebuilt in the magnificent Gothic style that we see today! If you do visit here it is a MUST to go inside as the interior is even more awe-inspiring than the outside #history #mychesterstory #walkthewalls #travel #cathedral #chester #beautiful #sunny #winter

Did you know❓ The famed Chrysler Building in Manhattan is up for sale again. There is skepticism that it could sell for the $800M which is the price the current owners paid. The Chrysler Building was the tallest building in the world for 11 months before it was surpassed by the Empire State Building in 1931. Photo Credit 📸: @marcodegennarophotos
Functional castles are an increasingly rare commodity in Ireland. Many have been impeccably restored into hotel masterpieces thanks to investors who are reviving seats held or landmarks that survived a war, which left many in ruins. Their personal motivations range from rediscovering ancestral roots to simply finding a place to park their antique collections.

Líbí se mi okenice a taková malá okýnka s příběhem. K našemu domu by se však nehodila.

The curators from @draytonhall are taking the gloves off for a great discussion about the house, the grounds and anything else you can think to ask them. Tomorrow night at 6:00 pm at the Library Society - the discussion is free, the cost for the reception afterwards is $10 for members and $20 for non-members. I will do a little presentation about the Palladian Circle tomorrow night as well - it will be a fun and informative evening! #theaccidentalpreservationist

Покровская 11 А обращали ли вы внимание на это странное здание, прогуливаясь по Покровской? Наверняка, ведь просто невозможно пройти мимо не обратив внимание на такое необычное строение, как это! Между прочим, это прямоугольное строение своего рода торговый центр, и ему уже больше двух сотен лет — построено оно было в 1809 году! Когда-то в нем размещалось целых пять лавок, у каждой из которых был свой отдельный вход. При совке входы заложили, но потом, во время реставрации в 80-х, двери вернули на законное место — и слава Богу. Сейчас здание выглядит завершенным, логичным и здорово бросается в глаза. Очень жаль, что его занимает Академиея Наук, и попасть внутрь с фотоаппаратом у меня не получилось — охрана бдела. Но уж лучше пускай оно находится в гос. собственности и продолжает существовать, да еще и в весьма человеческом состоянии. Им хоть со стороны полюбоваться можно...👍
I have never been a fan of "façadism" as it is known in England and I am not sure what to make of this new glass building inside the stone facade...

Formerly known as the New York Curb Exchange Building, the American Stock Exchange Building is an icon of the city’s history as a financial capital. The building held a stock trading floor from 1920 to 2009, when the American Stock Exchange merged with the neighboring New York Stock Exchange. • • #stockexchange #americanstockexchange #shares #historicalbuilding #architecture_best #historical #newyork #passionpassport #travelpic #citytravel #ilovenewyork #iheartnyc #loves_nyc #lovenewyork #newyorkphoto #newyorkphotography #newyorkvibes #newyorklife #newyorklike #newyorkpictures #ilovewanderlust #thisisnewyorkcity #iloveny #nycgo #ilovenyc #buildingamerica #thebigapple #nyc_explorers #imagesofnyc #ignyc

Secesní nádraží Praha Vyšehrad. Vlaky tudy pořád projíždějí, ale nádraží chátrá. Mělo tu být nějaké multifunkční kulturní centrum, ale myslím, ze dřív nebo pozděj spíš spadne. Před 10 lety se náklady na rekonstrukci odhadovaly na 100 milionů, dneska by to určitě bylo mnohem víc... . . . #streetphotography #art #backintime #architecture #streetshot #artiseverywhere #everybodystreet #lifeisstreet #storytelling #storytellingmoments #streetxplorer #xplorethestreets #lifeinthestreet #lookaround #whatashame #vysehrad #praha2 #railwaystation #historicalbuilding #prague #artnouveau #artnouveaustyle #artnouveauprague

Дом возведен в 1911 году в стиле позднего классицизма, по проекту архитектора Рыкова Валерияна Николаевича. Пожалуй, среди самых красивых зданий по ул.Саксаганского, это определенно занимает место в числе первых. И хотя дом на фоне многих других выглядит скромно, угловой эркер настолько удачно оживляет всю картинку, что от дома глаз не оторвать. Что уж говорить- Валериан Николаевич был большим мастером. Чего только стоит один его Ипподром - украшение всего Печерска!
