Whether exploring an ancient site, or just walking through a city…..regardless of whether you are an architecture nerd like me (or the spouse of one, being dragged through said space ), never forget to look up. No saying what you might miss!
See what we found, above an otherwise nondescript pavement arcade in Bilbao!
And here are a few more unique ceilings, for Ailsa’s Travel Theme – Up:
The intricate carpet like details on the ceiling of the practically unknown Scribe’s Tomb in Luxor.
Grape Vines painted on to a dome in the gorgeous Harem of the Topkapi Palace, Istanbul
A simple early Christian cave church in the Goreme Valley, Cappadocia
The ceiling depicting a forest of trees in Gaudi’s La Sagrada Famlia, Barcelona
The incredible Zodiac ceiling of Dendera, depicting Goddess Nut swallowing the Sun at night!
Until next time……..happy travels, no matter where life takes you!
