This is one of the weirdest fish I have ever seen. It’s like a mix of a lobster, bird, and a fish. It has 6 “legs” that it walks on the ocean floor with, and when it needs to move faster, it has these blue tipped wings it spreads to swim. Really fascinating to see in person #rubio #malaga #spain #diving #espana #scuba #marinelife #weirdfish

Just Pinned to Spain: The small town of Ronda in the Spanish Province of Málaga is located atop a series of dramatic cliffs.The two halves of this city lie on either side of the El Tajo Gorge and are connected by the famous New Bridge. From historic sights to spectacular landscapes, there are lots of things to do in Ronda. #Travel #Travelinspiration #Travelling #Traveltips #Wanderlust #TravelJournal #Traveldestinations #Bucketlist #TravelQuotes #TravelPacking #TravelBucketList https://ift.tt/2Zv9eLs

Motivi potentissimi e quasi sempre segreti sono all’origine di mille dettagli che compongono la bellezza brulicante dell’universo. Una singolarità può sembrarci gratuita, ma la sua forza espressiva nasconde sempre delle radici.

The Royal Monastery of Santa Maria de Pedralbes in Barcelona, Spain, was founded in 1326 by Queen Elisenda of Montcada, the wife of King James II of Aragon, as a means of supporting the nuns of the Order of the Poor Clare’s (named after St. Clare), also known as the Clarissa Nuns. Queen Elisenda lived there from the time of the death of her husband King James II in 1327 to her own passing in 1364. It is built in the Catalan Gothic style.

The term “Catalan Gothic” is used solely in reference to Barcelona and its area of influence (Girona, Northern Catalonia, Balearic Islands, etc.), which has its own characteristics. The style is not the soaring, light-filled majestic structure with intricately designed flying buttresses, nor does it display the statuary and artistic design of the French cathedrals. Rather, the Catalan Gothic style favors a more unified space, with slender columns that are spaced far enough apart so as not to obscure the view of the side aisles. The single building of the Church of Pedralbes has seven quadripartite (4 part ribbing) vaults and a heptagonal (7 sided) apse. The last three sections correspond to the choir, which, until the 19th century had been separated from the rest of the church by a wall that was demolished in 1894.

Catalan Gothic tends to balance the dimensions of width with height, so there are no long sloping roofs that are more of a characteristic of central and northern Europe. Its buttresses are as tall as the naves. They also have fewer windows because in the Mediterranean, light is much stronger than in the rest of Europe. They are minimally decorated, having no figurative motifs on their pillars and no intricacy in their vaults.

The main element of the complex is its impressive Gothic cloister, around which the monastery is built, which is the world’s largest. It is made up of three storeys: the bottom two, which are from the 14th century and form two galleries with twenty-six columns on each side in nummulite stone (limestone with fossil remains) from Girona, and the top floor, which was subsequently added as an attic. The courtyard contains a beautiful re-creation of a medieval medicinal garden with some fifty remedial plants.

During the Peninsular War (1808-1814), the monastery was converted into a military barracks. The cloister was filled with horses and canons, which broke and cracked many of the paving stones that made up the courtyard grounds.

The monastery opened to the public in 1983 as a museum and cultural interest center. Visitors can gain insight about the every day lives of the nuns as they walk through the dormitories and other rooms, as well as the infirmary, which is  one of the best preserved examples of a Renaissance hospital building. One can also visit the monastic day cells, one of which contains spectacular fresco paintings by Ferrer Bassa, one of the Catalan Gothic period’s most noted artist and Spain’s first partisan of Italian Trecento painting (a period of Pre-Renaissance art, around the 14th century).

image

The single-nave church is home to the tomb of Queen Elisenda, which is located between the cloister and the church. There you will find a statue of her, dressed in the nuns habit of the order, laying down, as if asleep. The monastery is one of the best examples of Gothic architecture in Catalonia, and has been declared a place of national historical interest.

Been seeing this meme around.  I support the idea here, but definitely complicated. True for the Mayans/Aztecs/Incans/etc., but not for the Spanish conquistadors who basically wiped those groups off the map like the British did to Native American tribes.

Don’t give Spain a pass for their genocide of indigenous people in North and South America. Saying “All Mexican citizens are Native Americans” is like saying “All U.S. citizens are Native Americans”. 

¡¡¡YO ES QUE ME DESCOJONO!!! XD

Ay, señor, guys, please, I’m begging you, watch this.

This is just so true, and the way he says it?! The way he speaks?!?!? Oh my God! XDDDDDDD

@eva-93 @kate669 @foxlanaeshrek @le-poule @true15sblog Guys, anyone, PLEASE, watch it! I swear, even I learned new expressions because he’s Andaluz, and they have a whole new vocabulary and accent compared to the rest of Spain! Lol

In fact, I think Andalucía is the only region of Spain that doesn’t have their own official language where you’ll find such a diverse vocabulary. I swear… dude, just watch it.
