Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, on the shores of Lake Superior in Michigan, USA

Il progetto di Rosario Gagliardi, di cui si conservano le tavole originali, è caratterizzato dalla monumentale facciata a torre che ingloba il campanile nel prospetto e termina con una cuspide a bulbo, richiamando i tabernacoli lignei, seicenteschi, delle chiese cappuccine.

La collocazione della chiesa al termine di un'alta scalinata e la posizione obliqua rispetto alla piazza sottostante accentuano l'imponenza e gli effetti plastici, creati da una lieve convessità del partito centrale e dalla presenza delle colonne libere. Due coppie di volute fanno da raccordo tra i diversi livelli ospitando, rispettivamente, le statue di San Giorgio e San Giacomo in basso, e quelle di San Pietro e San Paolo in alto.

Sulla cuspide, sotto la croce, si legge la data 1775, che indica la conclusione dei lavori della facciata.

Nel primo ordine del partito centrale si apre un grande portale con cornice mistilinea, ricca di fregi e rilievi a motivi vegetali, mentre le porte lignee hanno una preziosa decorazione scultorea, in sei riquadri, con la raffigurazione di episodi del martirio di San Giorgio, opera dell'intagliatore palermitano Vincenzo Fiorello, che li realizzò nel 1793.

Grand Portal Point sea arch is a natural opening eroded out of the cliff face and formed by the powerful action of Lake Superior waves on the soft sandstone that underlies the harder layers above. A portion of the Grand Portal Point roof collapsed during the winter of 1999-2000 partially filling in the arch. The Pictured Rocks are colorful sandstone cliffs along the coast of Lake Superior in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Print Size 13x19 inches.

Antica chiesa madre della città prima del 1693, sorgeva all'estremità est dell'abitato, nei pressi dell'attuale giardino Ibleo, dove si trova ancora il grande portale quattrocentesco, di stile gotico-catalano, unica vestigia rimasta dell'antico tempio.

La chiesa fu gravemente danneggiata dal terremoto e restarono in piedi parte della facciata, alcune cappelle e parte della Cappella maggiore, per cui venne costruito un ampio locale adiacente alla navata sinistra del vecchio tempio, in cui poter svolgere le funzioni.

Nel secondo quarto del XVIII secolo, si decise di trasferire la chiesa nel sito della vecchia di San Nicola, che fino al XVI secolo era stata la parrocchia dei fedeli di rito greco e successivamente, passata al rito latino, era divenuta "chiesa sacramentale" di San Giorgio.

Del progetto venne incaricato nel 1738 Rosario Gagliardi, architetto di Noto, uno dei protagonisti della ricostruzione barocca, di cui questo edificio è forse l'opera migliore: infatti per costruirla l'artista ideò un superbo gioco di prospettiva; orientò la chiesa un po' più a sinistra della piazza antistante (lo si può ben notare) così che la futura cupola fosse visibile dietro l'imponente facciata a campanile, caratteristica peculiare delle chiese del Gagliardi.

La prima pietra fu posta il 28 giugno del 1739, come ricorda una lapide murata sul lato destro della scalinata, e tuttavia, come ricorda l'enigmatica iscrizione posta sul lato opposto, i lavori poterono cominciare solo nel 1744. Il 5 ottobre 1775, con la "salita" delle campane, si conclusero i lavori della facciata. Secondo tradizione la cupola sarebbe stata progettata e realizzata nel 1820 dal capomastro ragusano Carmelo Cultraro, su modello di quella del Pantheon di Parigi, ma recenti studi e riscontri archivistici ne assegnano la paternità all'architetto Stefano Ittar.

Al Vescovo venne intitolato l'altare del transetto destro che probabilmente è posto nel luogo in cui sorgeva l'altare maggiore dell'antica chiesa. L'ultima modifica del complesso risale al 1890, quando venne realizzata l'inferriata che cinge la scalinata. In questo duomo è stato girato la seconda serie di L'onore e il rispetto. Nell'attiguo museo del Duomo sono conservate le vestigia dell'antica San Giorgio, compreso un magnifico altare cinquecentesco del Gagini. it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duomo_di_San_Giorgio_(Ragusa)

 

ENGLISH VERSION

Ragusa was very badly damaged in 1693. The town is in two halves, divided by a deep ravine known as the "Valle dei Ponti": the older town of Ragusa Ibla, and the higher Ragusa Superiore.

Ragusa Ibla, the lower city, boasts an impressive array of Baroque architecture, which includes the Church of San Giorgio by Rosario Gagliardi, designed in 1738. In the design of this church Gagliardi exploited the difficult terrain of the hillside site. The church towers impressively over a massive marble staircase of some 250 steps, a Baroque feature, especially exploited in Sicily due to the island's topography. The tower seems to explode from the façade, accentuated by the columns and pilasters canted against the curved walls. Above the doorways and window apertures, pediments scroll and curve with a sense of freedom and movement which would have been unthinkable to those earlier architects inspired by Bernini and Borromini. The neoclassical dome was not added until 1820. Rosario Gagliardi's Church of San Giorgio, Ragusa

In an alley connecting Ragusa Ibla with Ragusa Superiore is the church of Santa Maria delle Scale. This church is interesting, though badly damaged in the earthquake. Only half the church was rebuilt in Baroque style, while the surviving half was kept in the original Norman (with Gothic features), thus demonstrating in one piece the evolution of Sicilian Baroque. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sicilian_Baroque

Petit Portal Point, Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, Michigan's Upper Peninsula (Lake Superior)

These formidable bronze doors, folded back during business hours, guard the entrances to the building. Admittedly, this isn't the main entrance, on Battery Street, but that tiny (yet evidently well-used) Yale-type keyhole still looks comical within such a grand portal. Great lions, too.

 

The first substantial new building project begun after the 1906 earthquake, the US Custom House (the second on this site) was designed by Eames & Young and opened in 1911. A fine, yet restrained example of the Beaux Arts Classicist ('American Renaissance') style, the steel-framed, granite-clad edifice took five years to build, possibly because workers and resources were often needed elsewhere during the reconstruction of the city, and is now on the National Register of Historic Places.

Stortorget 18-22 Stockholm

 

Chokladkoppen is a cozy café with lovely food and cold and hot drinks in a unique building at Stortorget 18 in the heart of Gamla stan (Old town) in Stockholm.

 

Number 22, the green building on the left side of Kåkbrinken, is from 1758 but is standing on medieval walls. It was occupied by the councillor Johan Berndes who developed the Swedish copper production in the 17th century, then by the Saxon Polycarpus Crumbügel, close friend to King Charles XI who caused the so-called Reduction when an important part of the Swedish nobility lost its estates (for which he was raised to peerage as Cronhielm).[16] During an archaeological excavation in 1998, a vaulted chamber measuring 1.8×1.6 metres (approx. 5'11"×5'3") was discovered in the basement. It was supplied with a channel which is believed to have connected it to privies and kitchen sinks in the building. Along with some wooden tubes found near Kornhamnstorg, it is one of the few indications contradicting the traditional view of medieval Stockholm as a repulsive place where filth and refuse filled the streets.

 

The buildings on Number 18-20 were merged in the 17th century and subsequently named after Johan Eberhard Schantz, the secretary of Charles X Gustavus who also added the stepped gable and the grand portal on the left building. Parts of the interior still reflect the luxury which surrounded the royal secretary. The 82 white stones on Number 20, Ribbinska huset ("House of Ribbing") or Schantzka huset ("House of Schantz"), are occasionally said to symbolize the heads decapitated by the Danish king in 1520. The house was, however, built no later than 1479, when it appears in historical records. The former of the names refers to the councillor Bo Ribbing who gave the property to Schantz in 1627, who added the stones the following year.

On Day 2, we put our backpacks on and hiked West from Chapel Beach to Mosquito Beach. To me, it's the most amazing hike in Michigan. We took a break to look at the Grand Portal. You can see where the rocks recently collapsed. On the right, the tour boat is rounding the point.

Rough seas on Lake Superior slam into the sandstone cliffs of Pictured Rocks in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

This marker is at the entrance to The Grange stone circle. I'm not sure what the symbol means, but it looks to be a rune.

 

the Grange is the largest stone circle in Ireland. It is located around 1,000 ft (300 m) from the western edge of Lough Gur in county Limerick. Also known as the ‘Líos na Grainsi’ (Irish for ‘Stones of the Sun’), this ring of 113 stones encloses a platform raised 2 ft (60 cm) up from the surrounding field. It has a monumental stone-lined entrance facing the rising sun of the summer solstice. Two grand portal stones, around 6.5 ft (2 m) high, stand at either side of the entrance. Aligned with the rising sun, on the day of the Summer Solstice the sun shines directly in the center of the circle. It is surrounded by an earthen bank, which in places is three to four feet high and makes it look more like a form of henge monument than a conventional stone circle.

La Cattedrale di Santo Stefano

La pieve fu fondata probabilmente nel V secolo; l’opera di ampliamento e ristrutturazione, iniziata intorno alla metà del XII secolo, trasformò la modesta costruzione delle origini in una delle chiese romanico-gotiche più notevoli del territorio toscano.

Alla seconda metà del XII secolo risale anche il bel chiostro romanico parzialmente modificato nel XV secolo.

 

Il campanile, realizzato probabilmente su progetto di Guidetto da Como agli inizi del Duecento, fu completato con la cella a trifore nel 1356-57. Nel 1386, contemporaneamente alla costruzione della Cappella della Sacra Cintola, venne iniziata l’attuale facciata tardo-gotica di Lorenzo di Filippo, con basamento in alberese e parte superiore a fasce di alberese e serpentino verde alternate, completata solamente alla metà del secolo successivo, periodo cui risalgono anche le partiture architettoniche più interessanti dell’edificio esterno: il grande portale con lunetta decorata da una terracotta invetriata di Andrea della Robbia, e il pulpito esterno di Donatello, l’originale del parapetto è attualmente conservato nel Museo dell’Opera del Duomo.

One of the highest points in Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is at the Grand Portal, a massive archway in the sandstone. Until 2000, it was an exciting waterway for kayakers. Erosion caused the arch's ceiling to collapse, leaving the mound of rubble beneath the arch that is shown in the picture. The white "spots" amid the rubble are gulls which give scale to this massive structure (they look more like gulls in large view) ; -).

 

The cliffs of Pictured Rocks, directly facing Lake Superior, soar to nearly 200 feet (61m) high.

Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

El Templo de Lúxor, situado en el corazón de la antigua Tebas, mide 260 m. de largo y está dedicado a Amón.

Esta plaza estaba adornada con seis colosos de Ramsés II, cuatro de pie y dos sentados, además de dos obeliscos. El pilono o pilón, palabra proveniente del griego 'puerta grande', 'portal', es una construcción con forma de pirámide truncada, a modo de gruesos muros, que, erigidos por pares, flanquean la entrada principal de los templos del Antiguo Egipto, en el espacio dejado entre ambos se encuentra la puerta de acceso. Simbolizaban las paredes escarpadas a ambos lados del río Nilo. En cuanto al simbolismo arquitectónico, el "pilono" egipcio ha resultado un antecedente del arco de triunfo grecorromano .

”Мы столяли на плоскости с переменным углом отраженья

Grand Portal Point Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.

The Geneva lake lies on the course of the Rhone. The river has its source at the Rhone Glacier near the Grimsel Pass to the east of the lake and flows down through the Canton of Valais, entering the lake between Villeneuve and Le Bouveret, before flowing slowly towards its egress at Geneva. Other tributaries are La Dranse, L'Aubonne, La Morges, La Venoge, La Vuachère, and La Veveyse.

 

Lake Geneva is the largest body of water in Switzerland, and greatly exceeds in size all others that are connected with the main valleys of the Alps. It is in the shape of a crescent, with the horns pointing south, the northern shore being 95 km (59 mi), the southern shore 72 km (45 mi) in length. The crescent form was more regular in a recent geological period, when the lake extended to Bex, about 18 km (11 mi) south of Villeneuve.

 

The detritus of the Rhone has filled up this portion of the bed of the lake, and it appears that within the historical period the waters extended about 2 km (1.2 mi) beyond the present eastern margin of the lake. The greatest depth of the lake, in the broad portion between Évian-les-Bains and Lausanne, where it is just 13 km (8.1 mi) in width, has been measured as 310 m (1,020 ft), putting the bottom of the lake at 62 m (203 ft) above sea level. The lake's surface is the lowest point of the cantons of Valais and Vaud.

 

The beauty of the shores of the lake and of the sites of many of the places near its banks has long been celebrated. However it is only from the eastern end of the lake, between Vevey and Villeneuve, that the scenery assumes an Alpine character. On the south side the mountains of Savoy and Valais are for the most part rugged and sombre, while those of the northern shore fall in gentle vine-covered slopes, thickly set with villages and castles.

 

The snowy peaks of the Mont Blanc are shut out from the western end of the lake by the ridge of the Voirons[clarification needed], and from its eastern end by the bolder summits of the Grammont, Cornettes de Bise and Dent d'Oche, but are seen from Geneva, and between Nyon and Morges. From Vevey to Bex, where the lake originally extended, the shores are enclosed by comparatively high and bold mountains, and the vista terminates in the grand portal of the defile of St. Maurice, cleft to a depth of nearly 2,700 m (8,900 ft) between the opposite peaks of the Dents du Midi and the Dent de Morcles.

 

The shore between Nyon and Lausanne is called La Côte because it is "flatter". Between Lausanne and Vevey it is called Lavaux and is famous for its hilly vineyards.

La fachada del Nacimiento, también llamada de Levante, es la única construida en vida de Gaudí, continuando el proceso de construcción por esta puerta, porque tal como dijo él mismo: "si en lugar de hacer esta facha decorada, ornamentada, turgente, hubiese empezado por la de La Pasión, dura, pelada, como hecha con huesos, la gente se hubiese desanimado".

 

Está situada en la calle Marina y tiene tres grandes portales, que de izquierda a derecha, son los dedicados a La Eperanza, La Caridad y La Fe. Justamente en el centro, sobre la puerta principal y entre las cuatro torres, se encuentra un ciprés que representa el árbol de la vida, coronado con una cruz en forma de T (Tau), simbolizando al Dios Padre, con unas diagonales encima en forma de X (Khi) que representa el símbolo del nombre de Cristo y finalmente una paloma con las alas abiertas en alusión al Espíritu Santo.

It's an 8 mile round trip hike to see this part of the Chapel Basin area of Pictured Rocks.

Geneva (Arpitan: Genèva, IPA: [d͡zənɛva]; French: Genève, IPA: [ʒənɛv]; German: Genf, IPA: [ˈɡɛnf] ; Italian: Ginevra; Romansh: Genevra) is the second-most-populous city in Switzerland (after Zürich) and is the most populous city of Romandie (the French-speaking part of Switzerland). Situated where the Rhône River exits Lake Geneva (in French also known as Lac Léman), it is the capital of the Republic and Canton of Geneva. While the municipality itself (city center) has a population (as of 31 December 2009) of 185,958, the metropolitan area has 1,240,000 residents, according to a 2007 census. The Greater Geneva Bern area has 2,800,000 residents.

 

Geneva is a global city, a financial centre, and a worldwide centre for diplomacy and the most important international co-operation centre with New York because of the presence of numerous international organizations, including the headquarters of many of the agencies of the United Nations and the Red Cross. It is also the place where the Geneva Conventions were signed, which chiefly concern the treatment of wartime non-combatants and prisoners of war.

 

Geneva is located at 46°12' North, 6°09' East, at the south-western end of Lake Geneva, where the lake flows back into the Rhône River. It is surrounded by two mountain chains, the Alps and the Jura.

 

The altitude of Geneva is 373.6 meters (1,225.7 ft), and corresponds to the altitude of the largest of the Pierres du Niton, two large rocks emerging from the lake which date from the last ice age. This rock was chosen by General Guillaume Henri Dufour as the reference point for all surveying in Switzerland. The second main river of Geneva is the Arve River which flows into the Rhône River just west of the city centre. Mont Blanc can be seen from Geneva and is only an hour's drive from the city centre.

 

The Geneva lake lies on the course of the Rhone. The river has its source at the Rhone Glacier near the Grimsel Pass to the east of the lake and flows down through the Canton of Valais, entering the lake between Villeneuve and Le Bouveret, before flowing slowly towards its egress at Geneva.

L'inizio della fabbrica di questa chiesa in rossa trachite, una delle più antiche del Romanico in Sardegna, risale alla seconda metà dell'XI secolo, ma l'impianto della facciata di cui vediamo il particolare è degli inizi del XIII secolo.

Negli archi laterali si apre un oculo quadrilobato nelle cui ghiere interne si alternano due conci di trachite rossa a due conci di calcare bianco. In quello centrale si apre il grande portale con architrave in calcare e arco di scarico a ogiva.

 

View of Grand Portal Point from the North Country Trail in the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.

Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, Lake Superior, Munising Michigan.

Grand Portal Point is a well-known formation of rock that juts out into Lake Superior from the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore located northeast of the Upper Peninsula town of Munising, Michigan. There was once a cavity at the end that was large enough for a good sized ship to sail through and it was perhaps a hundred feet or more in height from the surface of the water. That arch collapsed during the night of Sunday, September 16, 1900. Grand Portal Point suffered a second, significant collapse sometime between the fall of 1999 and spring of 2000. The arch is still there, but there's now a rubble pile in the bottom large enough to inhibit any water traffic.

Quartu Sant'Elena (Cagliari) Sardinia.

Tipico della casa campidanese “a corte chiusa” è il grande portale d’accesso, spesso arricchito da decorazioni. Il portone, che era di dimensioni adatte a permettere il passaggio dei carri, è formato da due ante: una -generalmente la destra- contiene al suo interno un'apertura, detta "su portalitu", per l'accesso delle persone. Dal portone si accede ad una corte con giardino su cui si affaccia il loggiato con le varie stanze.
