“Le Gravine di Matera sono incisioni erosive simili a canyon che si trovano in provincia di Matera. Le gravine sono tipiche morfologie carsiche della Murgia, quelle di Matera sono alcune delle gravine della Basilicata e della Puglia.” #catelovecamelia #fantastic_earth #photography #Great_Captures_Italia #LOVES_MADEINITALY #ig_italia #panorama #photooftheday #naturephotography #landscape #photo #travel #matera #matera2019 #loves_united_italia #basilicata #wanderlust #beautifuldestination #volgomatera #viaggiodinozze #summer2018 #sitiunesco #igersbasilicata #sassidimatera #italian_places #southitaly #italia365 #igersitalia #igersmatera #unescoworldheritage
Did you know? 🇮🇹 In Italian the Leaning Tower of Pisa is Torre pendente di Pisa. It was built as a freestanding bell tower for the cathedral in Pisa. On the side where the tower is lower because of the lean it stands at 187.27 feet. On the high side of the tower it stands at 186 feet. There are approximately 294 steps on the north side and 296 steps on the south side of the tower. The Leaning Tower of Pisa took 344 years to build, beginning in August 1173. Inside the tower there are seven bells. Each bell represents one note of the musical major scale. During World War II, the Allies heard that Germans were using the Leaning Tower of Pisa as an observation post. Once the Allies saw how beautiful the tower was they refrained from destroying it. The Leaning Tower of Pisa became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987. Also included in this designation were the cathedral, cemetery and the baptistery.

“I primi anni ‘90, grazie al riconoscimento dell’Unesco (1993) e agli effetti della legge nr 771 del 1986, segnano l’avvio di un’importante fase di rinascita dei Sassi. I due rioni tornano ad essere parte integrante della città: si dotano di infrastrutture e servizi, vengono riaperti percorsi e strade, si ristrutturano immobili, si restaurano monumenti e chiese, si riqualificano piazze e vicinati. Nei Sassi i materani tornano a vivere e a lavorare: oltre 2mila persone scelgono di risiedervi; si aprono uffici, studi d’arte, laboratori artigianali, società di design, grafica e informazione; nei Sassi si torna a passare il tempo libero: si inaugurano caffè, birrerie, tisanerie, auditorium, pub. Il nuovo interesse non è esclusivo dei materani: per mezzo secolo la città era stata completamente ignorata dal settore turistico, sia perchè il centro storico non era fruibile nè riqualificato sia per l’immagine cittadina legata esclusivamente alla miseria. I restauri, la consapevolezza dell’inestimabile patrimonio storico e lo straordinario impatto visivo che i Sassi regalano hanno ribaltato il destino turistico della città, con una crescita esponenziale del risalto mediatico, degli arrivi di visitatori e delle strutture cittadine loro dedicate. Nei Sassi sono sorte negli ultimi anni strutture ricettive e ristorative che riescono a coniugare luoghi suggestivi ed insoliti quali grotte e palazzi storici con moderni comfort e alta qualità dei servizi. Matera è oggi una delle più importanti destinazioni turistiche nazionali e la sua incredibile storia di rinascita è oggetto di interesse per testate giornalistiche ed editoriali di tutto il mondo.” #catelovecamelia #fantastic_earth #photography #Great_Captures_Italia #LOVES_MADEINITALY #ig_italia #panorama #photooftheday #landscape #photo #travel #matera #matera2019 #loves_united_italia #basilicata #wanderlust #beautifuldestination #volgomatera #viaggiodinozze #summer2018 #goprohero5 #sitiunesco #igersbasilicata #sassidimatera #southitaly #italia365 #igersitalia #igersmatera #paesaggioculturale #unescoworldheritage

The fortress is one of the most valuable and best preserved examples of defense architecture in Dalmatia. It is made of brick because that material was considered to be most resistant to cannonballs, while the foundations are made of stone.

“Il centro storico di Matera è composto da quattro aree: 
1. Civita, il più antico nucleo cittadino, dove sorge la Cattedrale; 2. Sasso Barisano, rione ubicato nella vallata che si estende di fronte alla Cattedrale; 3. Sasso Caveoso, rione adagiato nella vallata alle spalle della Cattedrale, a ridosso del canyon Gravina; 4. il Piano, area pianeggiante che incornicia il margine superiore dei rioni Sassi, di sviluppo urbano più recente. Oggi i rioni Civita, Sasso Barisano e Sasso Caveoso formano un unico complesso urbano genericamente identificato come i Sassi di Matera. In epoca altomedievale invece la Civita era ben distinta dai Sassi: la prima costituiva la città propriamente detta, cinta da mura e fortificazioni; i Sassi erano borghi extra urbani adibiti a diverse funzioni.
I Sassi di Matera sono il risultato di uno sviluppo urbanistico senza eguali. Gli edifici totalmente costruiti, che normalmente compongono la totalità di uno spazio urbano, qui ne costituiscono solo una minima parte. Nei Sassi di Matera, infatti, le architetture costruite si integrano e si fondono con le architetture scavate. Non si tratta di grotte naturali, ma di ambienti scavati dall’uomo per ottenere sia materiale da costruzione per gli ambienti esterni, che luoghi ipogei particolarmente adatti a diversi usi e funzioni. In alcune zone dei Sassi le parti scavate sono evidenti già ad un primo sguardo; più spesso sono nascoste alla vista da quelle costruite.” #catelovecamelia #fantastic_earth #photography #Great_Captures_Italia #LOVES_MADEINITALY #panorama #photooftheday #landscape #photo #travel #matera #matera2019 #loves_united_italia #basilicata #wanderlust #beautifuldestination #volgomatera #viaggiodinozze #summer2018 #sitiunesco #igersbasilicata #sassidimatera #italian_places #southitaly #italia365 #igersitalia #igersmatera #paesaggioculturale #unescoworldheritage #goprohero5

Chora Church ( Kariye müzesi) is one of the best preserved Bizantium churches of Constantinople, UNESCO heritage Церковь Хора (Карие по-турецки) одноименного византийского монастыря очень хорошо сохранилась, особенно это касается фресок и мозаик😍 Построенная в XIв. и перестроенная в XIVв., эта церковь включена в список ЮНЕСКО Стамбула. К сожалению, сейчас она частично закрыта на реконструкцию (внешняя часть и пару залов). Поездку сюда можно совместить с посещением района Балат, Феодосийских стен или музея Панорама 1453. #hirondelle_turkey #hirondelle_маршрут
Planning our next trip and researching @unescoworldheritage sites has me thinking of my visit to Nelson’s Dockyard in Antigua, which is also an UNESCO World Heritage site. It’s named for Admiral Horatio Nelson who lived there from 1784-87. It’s a fascinating place. _________________ #traveltuesday #antigua #unescoworldheritagesite #unescoworldheritage #nelsonsdockyard #visitantiguabarbuda #travelthrowback #latergram #antiguabarbuda #caribbeantravel #caribbeanhistory #carlislebayantigua @antiguaandbarbuda @visitantigua @carlisle_bay_antigua
After just a wee bit of drama, and a day later than originally planned, we made it to Pamukkale yesterday! This is hands down one of the most stunning places I’ve ever visited. These bright blue calcium travertines are nothing short of breathtaking. With Hierapolis and Cleopatra’s Pool on the same site, I have SO many stunning pics to share with you 💙 What do you think?! - #pamukkale #turkey #unesco #unescoworldheritage #holiday #natureshot #bluewater #travertine #travel #naturesbeauty

Prowling through the streets, wearing a badge of honor as a UNESCO World Heritage, the steaming Toy Train blends concrete urban life on one side and the lush green nature on the other, something what Siliguri, our hometown, is all about. Running up the steep mountains amidst dense forests and breathtaking landscapes at snail's pace, this is a ride that gives one the memory of a lifetime; a treat, both for the passengers and the on-lookers. Much like the city and the people, Toy Trains are a blend of history, heritage and a taste of modernity. #shotoniphone #photooftheday #instaupload #instashare #snapseed #phonephotography #monochrome #heritagephotography #toytraindarjeeling #siliguri #photographersofindia #mypixeldiary #photographersofinstagram #unescoworldheritage
