Alpsee Lake, Germany 🇩🇪 -
Actually the first time seeing the Alps in April and no photo will ever do them justice. Literally cannot wait to go explore them in other countries! -
Also if you zoom in on the right corner you’ll see about 20 people parachuting over it

We travelled to both venues in 2011: the National Museum of Art of Catalonia (MNAC), Barcelona, where the surviving 12th century frescoes are installed in a contextual but rather bland (hardly “evocative”) layout; and the replica frescoes at Sant Joan de Boi in the Vall de Boi, situated near the borders of Aragon and France in the Pyrenees - a distance of about 300kms. The first extraction of the original murals by Italian technicians took place between 1919-1923; the second detachment by Spanish technicians was between 1976-1978. Copies were placed on both the interior and exterior walls between 1977 & 1998.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
From a label in the National Museum of Art of Catalonia (MNAC), Barcelona: “The Boi valley is one of the regions of the Catalan Pyrenees where the most Romanesque art been conserved, testimony to the importance of the area during the Middle Ages but to the subsequent isolation that prevented it from disappearing. The remains of the mural decoration from the church of Boi, the village after which the valley is named, are installed here in a space that evokes the church’s architecture, making it possible to place most of the fragments according to their original setting.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“From the inside of the church, only the paintings from the side aisles have been conserved, although the entire church must have been polychromed... [Their] style has little in common with other Catalan groups and is [instead] linked to the artistic culture of... southern France. The dynamic nature of the painting or the use of plain colours and well-outlined shapes are similar to the procedures used in the illumination of manuscripts, from where... some of the iconographical motifs come.”

The Museu Nacional contains Catalan art from pre-650AD to the modern era. It notably contains one of the greatest collections of Romanesque paintings in the world. Most of the murals originally belonged in rural churches in the Pyrenees and were made between the 11th and 13th centuries. This was my first exposure to Romanesque art, or at least my first exposure to a collection of this scale. #TeamJSquared #TeamJSquaredontour #travelblogger #travel #instablog #art #romanesque #historynerd #Barcelona

The church of St. Mary of La Cluse-Haute (Catalan: Església de Santa Maria de la Clusa) is a Romanesque church located in Pyrénées-Orientales. The construction of the church seems to date back to the X century. The church is a rectangular building with three naves of different heights with a lower header that ends with three semicircular apses. The main apse has frescoes of the XII century. 👼

1-2. Inside the Church of San Giusto, you’ll find a brilliant medieval mosaic in the Ravenna style (Remember San Vitale? We will go there soon. 😉). 3. #tilefloorporn 
4. FYI King Charles VII is buried here. RIP Charlie.
5. You can also find a 19th century depiction of the martyrdom of the patron saint #SanGiusto Tied up with ropes and heavy rocks and thrown into the sea. 
6–10. Outside, the simple facade reflects the austere #Romanesque style. On the hill you’ll also find ancient Roman ruins, a small museum, and a castle with a panoramic view. And lots of trees! 🌲🌲
PRO TIP: have some big ol’ beers at the castle bar 🍻

I was lucky enough to have a few hours to explore the city of Durham today. From Durham Cathedral, a Norman building constructed between 1093 and 1133 in the Romanesque style, to Durham Castle, cobblestone streets, and pretty shops and buildings, I thoroughly enjoyed exploring this historical old city. I definitely have to make a plan to visit again and spend a few days (at least) exploring this wonderful area. 💚 Happy Sunday lovely people. What have you been up to?

One of the oldest churches in Venice, located outside of St. Marks Square. Dedicated to St. Zulian and believed to be completed in 832.

El Monastir romànic de Sant Miquel de Fluvià a Catalunya, segles XI, XII i XV. Aquest fou una possessió de Sant Miquel de Cuixà al Conflent (Catalunya Nord) i després fou un monastir independant al final del segle XI ( encara una obra d'Oliba !). És una església de tres naus acabades amb tres absis simicirculars. Hi ha una volta de canó posada sobre arcatures dins la nau de l'església. Les naus destaquen els capitells i els pilars  amb columnes. La fortificació data probablement del segle XV. Al sud de l'edifici són les vestigis dels dependències monàstiques ( per exemple el claustre). El campanar del segle XII reprèn les línies dels campanars romànics del segle XI d'Oliba : Cuixà per exemple.
