The Auditorio de Tenerife Adán Martín is commonly known as Auditorio de Tenerife in Santa Cruz. This monument is also well-used as a joke named – “The Big Iron”. Despite many criticisms and change of names, it surely remains the VERY significant symbol of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, the capital of the Canary Islands. In my opinion, it is one of the best representations of modern architecture and as a landmark, becomes real paradise for photographers.
Palácio da Pena as its name is in Portuguese, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is one of the best representations of Romanticism style in the world. It combines architecture styles of Neo-gothic, Neo-Manueline, Neo-Islamic and Neo-Renaissance. Be sure to take a walk not only inside Pena castle, but also around the castle itself. The view from some of the hills are remarkably outstanding and you will have an even better impression of the castle whilst seeing it from a distance.
The Aljafería Palace is the only fortified Islamic palace that dates to the middle ages. The construction works of the palace have been completed in the second half of the 11th century. Being a very well preserved place, today it serves as headquarter of the Aragonese Parliament.
Among the major landmarks of the city is the Metropolitan Cathedral Of Athens. It’s used for ceremonies of national significance, but also for weddings and funerals of rich people. Completed in 1862, it was necessary to work 20 years and use the marble from 72 demolished churches to build the Cathedral’s walls.
Daria fell in love with the facade of the building, which skilfully unites the architectural styles of the Gothic, Baroque and the Renaissance era. I used the deserted streets of Dubrovnik in the early morning hours to capture the Rector’s Palace in a way it might have been resting peacefully on the shiny pavement back in its days in the 16th century.
