One of the main squares in the city is Weinmarkt, with several historical houses with painted facades and a Gothic fountain in the center, Weinmarktbrunnen. But this is a replica, as the original is in the courtyard of the Ritterscher Palast, in another street.
The Chapel Bridge is the trademark of this beautiful Swiss city. All in wood, with a length of more than 200 meters, was built in 1333 but suffered a serious fire that damaged many of its paintings.
Limmatquai is a charming boulevard on the banks of the city river. In its elegant buildings are several shops and luxurious restaurants. But my "almost empty" wallet only allowed me to see them on the outside.
We climb towards Lindenhof, the hill of the city, where you can take excellent pictures of the river and the other side of the city.
Zurich, despite still being a city with little tourism, surprised me a lot. Everyone told me that there was nothing to see here. So, my expectations were very low! However, the day spent here was very pleasant!
Bom dia. A Calçada do Gigante, património mundial da UNESCO desde 1986, é uma reserva geológica de cerca de 40 000 pedras basálticas prismáticas cuja formação se iniciou há cerca de 60 milhões de anos quando Pangeia se dividia para formar o Oceano Atlântico.

Hello, hello! Northern Ireland, previously unknown to tourists, is now a favourite tourist destination for lovers of the Game of Thrones, but not only for them!!! Yes, I HAVE NEVER EVER SEEN the show but I wanted to visit some of its scenery for its natural beauty, and to show you, of course.
Ireland's independence from British rule and the creation of the Republic of Ireland took place in 1921. Still, six of Ireland's counties in the Ulster region decided to remain united with Britain. This was the cause of many conflicts between the Irish Republican Army (IRA) and the British army, which caused thousands of deaths on both sides and further segregated (nationalist) Catholics from Protestants.
The present abbey and home of the Benedictine nuns, was initially built as a castle. This was intended to be the "love nest" of Margaret y Mitchell Henry, a leading ophthalmologist at that time. The couple took refuge here from pollution in London during the industrial era. But only for a few years because Margaret died in 1984, a few years after the completion of the work, during a trip to Egypt.
