Canongate, Edinburgh, Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 ~ Canongate lies almost at the end of the Royal Mile. The Royal Mile is a road that begins at the entrance of the Edinburgh castle and ends at the Holyroodhouse Palace within the city itself. ~ The legend that gave Holyrood it’s name took place here. Holyrood means holy cross. When King David 1 was out hunting in the woods at Canongate, he was attacked by a red deer. The legend says, a holy cross appeared and saved the King. ~ The King thus created the Holyrood Abbey. The Canons at the Abbey came to govern the area of Canongate too. Hence the name. ~ A few years later, when the living conditions in the old town of Edinburgh deteriorated, the wealthy families moved down to Canongate. ~ And that is the short history of Canongate. ~ #canongate #royalmile #royalmileedinburgh #scottishhistory #scottishcastles #historicalmonument #historicaldestinations #historicscotland #thisisedinburgh #gothicarchitecture #traveluk #visitscotland #historicmonument #scotlandtrip #scotlandexplore #gothic #scotlandcastles #britishhistory #historiccity #scenicscotland #sceniclandscape #edinburghcastle

Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris ⁣ ⁣ It was one of the first Cathedrals to use flying buttresses to help support the weight of the walls. Notre Dame was built higher and wider than previous Cathedrals had been and stress fractures began to appear within its first 100 years, so the flying buttresses were incorporated on the exterior of the building.⁣ ⁣ #medievaltravels #architecturephotography⁣ #oldchurches #total_churches #churchmasters #churchesofunstagram⁣ #church_masters #churchesofeurope #churchesandcastles #medievalchurch⁣ #churchesandcastles #church_masters #kings_gothic #historiccity #medievaltown⁣ #medievalcity #notredame #notredamefire #notredameparis #notredamecathedral⁣ #paris #historylovers #travel_drops_ #13thcentury #bestintravel⁣ #fever_old_stones #monuments #total_gothic #gothicarchitecture #igersparis

The Abbasi Hotel (formerly known as the Shah Abbas Hotel) is a hotel located in Isfahan, Iran. This complex was built at the time of king Sultan Husayn of Safavid about 300 years ago. It was built as a caravansary to provide lodging for passengers. The structure has been renovated since the 1950s by André Godard to fight and prevent degradation. #hotelabbasi #abbasihotel #abbasihotelgarden #safavid #safavidera #safavidart #esfahanziba #isfahan #historiccity #halfoftheworld #iran_tourist #irantourism

The annual celebration of #nationalparkweek commenced yesterday April 20th, 2019 - and how lovely it’s already turning out to be!! 😊 The warming sun and smiling spring flowers offer such splendor this time of year 😍 We invite you to #findyourpark at C&O Canal this week somewhere along the 184.5 miles of towpath. The historic C&O Canal begins in Georgetown, D.C., and continues in rough parallel with the Potomac River through Montgomery, Frederick, Washington, and Allegany Counties in Maryland. The western terminus - or endpoint - of the canal, pictured here, is in Cumberland, MD. This gorgeous skyline photo has been shared with us by @bradbolyard. Thank you so much for this capture, Brad, and happy trails everyone!! 👟🚴‍♀️🌄

In addition to crossing Norway and wandering in Peru, I’m adding one more series into my gallery for the next few posts: Malta. - Malta is intriguing for many reasons, and in my article for Travel Examiner, I wrote about one of them: the founder of baroque painting, Caravaggio, spent two years on the Mediterranean island, supplying it with two masterpieces. His fate in Malta resembled, however, more of an adventurous novel than just a story of art. More in the next few posts. - This picture shows Malta’s Grand Harbor with the capital Valletta on the left. - https://travelexaminer.net/in-the-footsteps-of-a-genius-outlaw-in-malta/

My Son and I, in Quebec City, 09 2018. This is my kind of town. A place where men have beards, as fancy as their women on their arms or by their side. Not only the most beautiful romantic Canadian city; the best of all the cities in the world I have been through. #fatherandson #fatherandsongoals #quebeccity #quebec #roadtrip #familyfirst #villedequebec #bonjour #workoutbreak #travelphotography #canadianphotography #historiccity
