The grotto in Parque Lage, Jardim Botânico, Rio de Janeiro, located just on the slope of Corcovado Mountain, under, lets say, Christ the Redeemer's right armpit. On the venue works a Visual Arts School, featuring the Mansion, gardens, grotto, turret, slaves dungeon, lake, dam, aquarium and belvedere. The huge Park preserves intact 143 species of trees of the Atlantic Rainforest, some rares. History begun when in 1811 Rodrigo de Freitas Mello e Castro (which named the Lagoon of my previous pic) purchased from Fagundes Varela the Sugar Mills and plantations "Del Rei". Rodrigo de Freitas then built the park in 1840 with project of English landscaper John Tyndale. In 1859 Antônio Martins Lage bought the park and made it private property, so in 1920 his son built the actual mansion with project by architect Mario Vodret, with decorative paintings of walls and ceiling by Salvador Payols Sabaté, giving it as a wedding gift to Italian Opera Singer Gabriella Bezanzoni Lage. Gabriella founded in 1936 the Sociedade do Teatro Lírico Brasileiro (Brazilian Society of Opera), transforming the mansion in the hot spot of Rio's society at her time. Facing financing difficulties, the property was expropriated by the government on the 50's, so now works the Visual Arts School. Right place to have a nice coffee. #igersbrasil #igersrio #cariocagram #brasilmostrasuacara #riodejaneiro #rio #rj #mountain #webstagram #jj #instagram #instagood #instamood #iphoneography #teg #architecture #grotto #cave

Cathedral and Abbey Church of St Albans, St Albans, Hertfordshire, England (reedit). At 84 metres (276 ft), its nave is the longest of any cathedral in England. St Alban was a pagan living in the Roman city of Verulamium, where St Albans is now, about 22 miles (35 km) north of London, circa 250 AD. Before Christianity became the official religion of the Roman Empire, local Christians were being persecuted by the Romans. Alban sheltered their priest, Saint Amphibalus, in his home and was converted to the Christian faith by him. When the soldiers came to St Alban's house looking for the priest, St Alban exchanged cloaks with the priest and let himself be arrested in his place. St Alban was taken before the magistrate, where he avowed his new Christian faith and was condemned for it. He was beheaded, according to legend, on the spot where the cathedral named for him now stands. The site is on a steep hill and legend has it that his head rolled down the hill after being cut off and that a well sprang up at the point where it stopped. A well certainly exists today and the road up to the cathedral is named Holywell Hill. A church was built on the site in mid-300 AD, but the style of this structure is unknown; the 13th century chronicler Matthew Paris claimed that the Saxons destroyed the building in 586. Offa II of Mercia, who ruled in the 8th century, is said to have founded the Benedictine abbey and monastery at St Albans. All later religious structures are dated from the foundation of Offa's abbey in 793. The abbey was built on Holmhurst Hill, but again there is no information to the form of the first abbey. The abbey was probably sacked by the Danes around 890. There was an intention to rebuild the abbey in 1005 when Abbot Ealdred was licensed to remove building material from then Roman City of Verulamium, but renewed Viking raids from 1016 stalled the Saxon efforts and very little from the Saxon abbey was incorporated in the later forms. Much of the current layout and proportions of the structure date from the first Norman abbot, Paul of Caen (1077-1093). The 14th abbot, he was appointed by the new Archbishop of Canterbury, Lanfranc. Building work started in the year of Abbot Paul's arrival. The design and construction was overseen by the Norman Robert the Mason. The plan has very limited Anglo-Saxon elements and is clearly influenced by the French work at Cluny, Bernay, and Caen and shares a similar floor plan to St Etienne and Lanfranc's Canterbury. The cruciform abbey when finished was the largest built in England at that time, and the tower was a particular triumph - it is the only 11th century great crossing tower still standing in England. The monastic abbey was completed in 1089 but not consecrated until Holy Innocent's Day, 1115, (28 Dec) by the Archbishop of Rouen. King Henry I attended as did many bishops and nobles. Internally the abbey was bare of sculpture, almost stark. The plaster walls were coloured and patterned in parts, with extensive tapestries adding colour. Sculptural decoration was added, mainly ornaments, as it became more fashionable in the 12th century - especially after the Gothic style arrived in England around 1170.

Tijuca Atlantic Rainforest, Rio de Janeiro. Home to hundreds of species of plants and wildlife, found only in the there, this is Rio's urban forest. Believe it or not, the city of Rio de Janeiro with more than 6 million citizens spreads around, with this 3,400 hectares of rainforest in the middle. But what is the most distinguishable note about this huge rainforest in the middle of the city of Rio de Janeiro is that it was man made. During colonial times most of the area was deforested and transformed in coffee plantations, one of the bases of the colonial economy. With the diversification of the economy after the transference of the Portuguese Kingdom to Brazil in 1808, the coffee culture declined and moved inland, so in 1861 Emperor D. Pedro II nominated Major Gomes Archer as forest administrator, with orders to reforest it all over again. He worked initially with 6 slaves and later, with 22 paid workers, planting in 13 years 100 thousand seedlings. The replanting was made with species, in its great majority, natives of the Atlantic Forest Ecosystem. The second administrator, Baron Gastão D’ Escragnole continued the replanting from 1874 to 1888. In addition to introducing more 30 thousand seedlings, transformed the forest in a leisure area, a park for public use, including exotic species, creating bridges, fountains, lakes and leisure areas with the orientation and help of the French landscaper Augusto Glaziou. Still in the XIX Century, the painter Nicolas Antoine Taunay dweller and landowner of a farm in the forest, portrayed its natural beauties that represent today a historical memory of the City of Rio de Janeiro. The painter received his friends and members of the imperial court in his house rendering the attractions of the forest known to Brazilians and foreigners that came to visit him. Today it's a national park featuring the nascent of many rivers, waterfalls, belvederes, caves, ecological tracks, and Os Esquilos (The Squirrels) Restaurant in the middle of the Park, which uses old coffee farm premises as a venue. It's quite simple, but if you like to have a nice meal surrounded by dozens of hummingbirds all over the place this is the right place to go.

Cathedral of Orvieto, Orvieto, Umbria, Italy. The building was constructed under the orders of Pope Urban IV to commemorate and provide a suitable home for the Corporal of Bolsena, a miracle which is said to have occurred in 1263 in the nearby town of Bolsena, when a traveling priest who had doubts about the truth of transubstantiation found that his Host was bleeding so much that it stained the altar cloth. The cloth is now stored in the Chapel of the Corporal inside the cathedral. The construction of the cathedral, dedicated to the Assumption of Mary (Santa Maria Assunta), lasted almost three centuries with the design and style evolving from Romanesque to Gothic as construction progressed. The flagstone of the cathedral was laid on 13 November 1290 by Pope Nicholas IV, and construction was entrusted to chief-mason Fra Bevignate di Perugia using a design by Arnolfo di Cambio (the architect of the cathedral of Florence). The cathedral was initially designed as a Romanesque basilica with a nave and two side aisles. But when Giovanni di Uguccione succeeded Fra Bevignate, the design was transformed into Italian Gothic forms. Construction continued slowly until in 1309 the Sienese sculpture and architect Lorenzo Maitani was commissioned to work on the church and solve several issues concerning the load-bearing capabilities of the building, especially of the choir. He rebuilt the apse into a rectangular shape and added a large stained-glass quadrifore window. Starting in 1310 he created the current façade up to the level of the bronze statues of the symbols of the Evangelists. He died in 1330, shortly before the completion of the duomo, succeeded by his sons. In 1347 Andrea Pisano, the former Master of the Works of the Florence Cathedral, was appointed the new Master of the Works. He was followed in 1359 by Andrea di Cione, better known as Orcagna. The beautiful mosaic decoration and the rose window are attributed to him. The Sienese architect Antonio Federighi continued the decoration of the façade between 1451 and 1456, adding some Renaissance modules. In 1503 Michele Sanmicheli finished the central gable and added the right spire, which was finished by Antonio da Sangallo junior in 1534. Final touches to the façade were made by Ippolito Scalza by adding the right pinnacle in 1590 and the left in 1605-1607. All in all, the succeeding architects kept a stylistic unity to the façade. The Gothic façade of the Orvieto Cathedral is one of the great masterpieces of the Late Middle Ages. The three-gable design is attributed to Maitani, who had clearly undergone some influence by the design scheme for the façade in Tuscan Gothic style of the Siena Cathedral by Giovanni Pisano (1287-1297) and the plan for façade of the Florence Cathedral by Arnolfo di Cambio (1294-1302). The most exciting and eye-catching part is its golden frontage, which is decorated by large bas-reliefs and statues with the symbols (Angel, Ox, Lion, Eagle) of the Evangelists created by Maitani and collaborators (between 1325 and 1330) standing on the cornice above the sculptured panels on the piers. In 1352 Matteo di Ugolino da Bologna added the bronze Lamb of God above the central gable and the bronze statue of Saint Michael on top of the gable of the left entrance. The bas-reliefs on the piers depict biblical stories from the Old and New Testament. They are considered among the most famous of all 14th century sculpture. These marbles from the fourteenth and fifteenth century are the collective and anonymous work of at least three or four masters with assistance of their workshops, It is assumed that Maitani must have worked on the reliefs on the first pier from the left, as work on the reliefs began before 1310. The installation of these marbles on the piers began in 1331. Above this decoration are glittering mosaics created between 1350 and 1390 after designs by artist Cesare Nebbia. These original pieces have been replaced and redesigned in the centuries since, particularly in 1484, 1713 and 1842. Most of these mosaic represent major scenes from the life of the Virgin Mary, from the "Nativity of Mary" in the lower right gable to the "Coronation of the Virgin Mary" in the topmost gable. One of these glassmakers is recorded as Fra Giovanni Leonardelli. Central to the mosaics is the large rose window built by the sculptor and architect Orcagna between 1354 and 1380. In the niches above the rose window stand the twelve apostles, while in niches on both sides twelve Old Testament prophets are represented in pairs. Statues in niches is typical for French Gothic cathedrals. It is therefore likely that the sculptors have undergone some influence. Eight statues have been attributed in the records to Nicola de Nuto. The spandrels around the rose window are decorated with mosaics representing the four Doctors of the Church. The frame of the rose window holds 52 carved heads, while the center of the rose window holds a carved head of the Christ.

Section of Trajan's Triumphal Column, Rome. Completed in 113, it was probably constructed under the supervision of the architect Apollodorus of Damascus at the order of the Roman Senate. It is located in Trajan's Forum, built near the Quirinal Hill, north of the Roman Forum. The structure is about 35 meters in height (125 ft) including its large pedestal. On the top there was a statue of Trajan, but it disappeared in the Middle Ages. On December 4, 1587, the top was crowned by Pope Sixtus V with a bronze figure of St. Peter, which remains to this day. The column is most famous for its spiral bas relief, that artistically describes the epic wars between the Romans and Dacians (101-102 and 105-106). The scenes depict mostly the Roman army in military activities such as setting out to battle and engaging the Dacians, as well as constructing fortifications and listening to the emperor's address and the success he accomplished. The carvings are crowded with sailors, soldiers, statesmen and priests, showing about 2,500 figures in all and providing a valuable source of information for modern historians on Roman and barbaric arms and methods of warfare (such as forts, ships, weapons etc.). The relief shows such details as a ballista or catapult for example. The emperor Trajan, depicted realistically in the Veristic style, makes 59 appearances among his troops.
