While many tourists are attracted to the old town of Dubrovnik, the nearby Benje Beach is also an interesting destination.
The beach with its sand and pebbles looks very much the perfect beach for lying down and enjoying the sun.
While there, the waters was still too cool and there wasn’t a lot of swimmers there.
Here are a couple of photos which give me fond memories of the beach.
The Castles of Bellinzona are a group of fortifications located around the town of Bellizona, the capital of the Swiss canton of Ticino. Situated on the Alpine foothills, the group is composed of fortified walls and three castles named Castelgrande, Montebello and Sasso Corbaro. Castelgrande is located on a rocky peak overlooking the valley, with a series of walls that protect the old city and connect to Montebello. Sasso Corbaro, the highest of the three castles, is located on an isolated rocky promontory south-east of the other two. The Castles of Bellinzona with their defensive walls have been an UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2000.
The walls seem quite well preserved.
I am glad that it has been awarded as a UNESCO site.
< 3 Photos>
The first one was taken in a private property in Okinawa, Japan. I must admit my initial focus was on the red flowers. My attention was subsequently captured by the stone walls which when put together with the plants and flowers seem to make a good picture.
The second photo was taken in a holiday resort in Langkawi, Malaysia. I was impressed by the architecture of the resort building. The slightly sloping stone walls add a lot to the elegance of the building.
The last one was taken in Chongqing, China. The wall was entirely covered by a mural depicting some history in the past. Apart from a door opening on the right hand bottom corner, it is somewhat difficult to understand it is a building.
Please enjoy 🙂
