Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology (MAAT) in Lisbon at sunrise

Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology (MAAT) | Lisbon, Portugal

Have you ever wondered what MAAT is and what it stands for? This is an abbreviation of the Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology. The purpose of this modern building is to be a space for international dialogue, critical thinking and debate. Located on the coast of Lisbon in Belem, it is easy to reach and is a must-see!

Piazza del Duomo | Milan, Italy

Milano Duomo is the 5th largest Cathedral in the world and among this list of five – it is the oldest Cathedral. The day before I took this photo, we were enjoying some “Spritz” with a friend in a rooftop bar. From there, we had a view of the top of the Cathedral. From a bird’s eye view, you can see the many sculptures that are decorating the Duomo Towers.

The Three Towers of San Marino are visible from a great distance when you drive through this country. Each of these medieval structures have their own “character”, name and history. The names of the towers are: Guita, Cesta and Montale.

Somewhere I’ve read that the San Marino walls mimics the Chinese wall. Initially, I thought that it was a slightly exaggerated statement, but when I searched for compositions for my photos this thought seemed true. The complex of the city walls, three towers and the city centre of San Marino itself was declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The gossip however, is that it’s the least visited country in the world.

It was much like a fairy tale for us, walking on the streets of San Marino. As the centre is on rocky hill, from which you can see all the valleys around, it was like living over the clouds. My favourite time in San Marino was during the sunrise. It was a perfect time to capture the famous San Marino – Three Towers, each located on top of three separate hills.
