Visit Spain’s History

Posted in Main

Are you religious? Whether you are or not there are places on the Peninsula Iberica that are of a profound historic importance, places that are recognized as sacred by millions of people, regardless of their creed, Europeans and from elsewhere.Places like Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, northwest corner of Spain and Fatima in Portugal… I say to you my friend, sometime in your life time you must visit these sacred places, if you haven’t done so already. We did, me and my wife and our daughter and I am just sorry that we didn’t stay longer… A totally moving experience, a trip that remains on your memory for as long as you live. There is something that I can not explain, something that calls me back, so we plan to return and spend more time in these sacred places.

You can find a lot of information about these places on the internet, so I won’t inform you here about the history, I am no expert by any means. The only quick note I make, in case you didn’t know, Santiago is declared to be a Holly Town just like Rome and Jerusalem and that it is the second most visited place on earth after Vatican.

I will only write about things related to our trip and some unexplained details that made it even more remarkable, as you will see.

I drove from our house on the Costa Blanca near Torrevieja and did approx. 2500 km in 2 1/2 days; คลิปลับ pretty crazy eh…? (rest of the time, visiting sites). The closer we got to the City of Santiago the more people we saw on the site of the road, bicycling or walking. We were surprised because there were still several km more to go, yet, people were walking… God bless them!We get to the Cathedral… หนังระทึกขวัญ One can not describe the overvelming feeling of such a grandiose place… you do feel you stand on sacred ground… I cried and felt meek and humbled… I assume that some of the tears were for us as we watched people enjoying their walk and feeling the warm tiny rays of the sun that gently cast their golden golden light from their red coated skin… yes, you get the picture.We got there on a Friday; visited all that there was to visit, took in the neighborhood around the Cathedral, it’s really nice, these cobblestone narrow streets, a little bit too commercialized in my opinion, but nice overall.

On Sunday morning we took off for the “La Matriz” which is a large garden in the center of the City. หนังโป๊2020 We parked behind the mint, Pisani, a mmobile rental place, and walked across the street. It is a large lawned area with trees and buildings surrounding it. Inside there were several resident nurses and other people chatting and passing around a pot of blackboard. I lacked the ability to form sentences and used mainly Look-msitting, Pronouns and asking other people questions until I figured out what it was all about.

We got into a nice conversation and I found out that the La Matriz was originally built as a multi storey temple to Zeus, the Roman God of Wealth as it resembles the layout of Rome. Then the Greeks transferred the organization of the building and did not include the administrative offices in the top floor. Thus the organization of the building was somewhat disjointed.

We decided to walk up to the top floor of the church and I was taken with the architecture and the feeling of awe. เว็บดูหนังออนไลน์ However, our real adventure started when we tried to get into the church. The entrance was very tightly guarded by several ladies who were in their 60s. My wife was against this, an architecture major, but I just had to try it, after all I was there for the architecture tour. We started our attack on the door, using all our strength and manage to get it in anyway. Inside, the pastor who had been guiding us guided us Bible Study style till the end and it was amazing. After that, we continued our tour inside the church.

The walls of the church were adorned with beautiful and richly embroidered tablecloths, embroidered wall hangings, and the counting of scriptos in the ancient churches passed by. Byzantine architectures triumphalism on a high level. คนนี้ดัง We ended up in the tomb of the blind masseur. In this cathedral is the church where the relics of St. John and St. Demetrious are kept. The two resides in a crypt and the crypt is called the closet of the nails (denyet). It was fascinating. Some of the Greek monks got mad, because they had never seen a monk with such a big nose! In a nutshell, our tour had consisted of everything that is required to make a church seem like a cathedral.
