  • 📌 Archaeological park of Selinunte, Sicily, Italy. Selinunte was an ancient Greek city located on the southwestern coast of Sicily; today it is one of the largest archaeological parks in Europe. The ruins of the city are located in the municipality of Castelvetrano, in the southern part of the province of Trapani.

In the archaeological site, on the acropolis there are some temples along with other secondary buildings, while other temples are located on a hill not far away.

Many buildings are ruined as a result of earthquakes that occurred in medieval times; however, some anastylosis interventions have allowed almost completely to rebuild Temple E (the so-called Temple of Hera), and to raise most of one of the long sides of Temple C.

The sculptures found in the excavations of Selinunte are found above all in the National Archaeological Museum of Palermo. The most famous work, the Efebo by Selinunte, is an exception, and is now exhibited at the Museo Civico di Castelvetrano.

  • #HotelAntiguaPalma is a typical Mallorcan stately home where different renowned Mallorcan families, merchants and priests have lived between the 15th and 16th centuries. 'Casa Noble' means Home of the Noblety. The entire hotel reincarnates the ancient spirit of its building and invites you to live the city the same way it was explored by the travelers back then, without cell phones or cameras, only with the eyes and heart wide open.

  • Orthodox Panagia Asinou Church in Cyprus

Located on the east bank of a stream, 3km from the mountainous village of Nikitari (Cyprus), Panagia Asinou Church is a small church dedicated to the Virgin of ‘Phorbia’. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and contains some of the finest Byzantine wall paintings on the island, dating from the 12th to the 17th century.

The church used to be a monastery church that was built in 1099 with the donation of Magistros Nikephoros Ischyrios, who subsequently became a monk with the name Nikolaos. It functioned until the end of the 18th century, when it was abandoned.

The church consists of two parts - the vaulted single-aisled nave and the narthex - which is a later addition belonging to the second half of the 12th century. The 12th century steep-pitched timber roof, covered with flat tiles, sheltered the church. Today, there are no traces of the rest of the monastic buildings.

The murals inside the church date from the 12th century to the 17th century and reflect the art of Constantinople, which is thought to be the artist's birthplace.

  • Korean architecture bears a strong resemblance to other East Asian architectural styles, but if you look a little closer the differences immediately stand out. Korean buildings are typically built with a stone foundation, and the tiled roofs are generally not as curved, along with a distinct space to transition from the outside to the inside.
