In 1883, Antonio Gaudi accepted the commission to continue the construction of the 'Church Of The Poor', La Sagrada Familia. Located to the north of Barcelona, this unusual building brought about a return to the teachings of Catholicism and Gaudi devoted the last 40 years of his life to the building that remains, even to this day, unfinished. Completed by Gaudi, the eastern facade is often referred to as the most ingenious sculpture of the century and all four of its facades have been designed to depict the life of the Son of God. The building surprises everyone with its originality yet the main interior is still an enormous building site The ceiling of the main church is composed of individual sections. The decorative elements contained in the many towers unite to take on the shape of flowers and fruit with subtle screw - shaped columns supporting the ceiling that creates an image of woodland

Dubai( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dubai is a fairy-tale holiday paradise with romantic desert scenery and a long history. Like an ancient kingdom from the 'One Thousand And One Nights' it's the second largest state in the United Arab Emirates located on the northern coast of the Arabian Peninsula. The trading of dates, goats, pearls and fish brought the city much prosperity and it gradually developed into the largest trading centre in the Near East. Maritime life has always played a significant role in the lives of those who live on the Arabian Gulf. With its triangular sails and a design that has remained unchanged for thousands of years, the dhow still sails these waters. Hundreds of them lie at anchor close to the old town on the banks of Dubai Creek. No other city in the United Arab Emirates possesses so many fascinating contrasts. But the past is gradually merging with the present and portrays a new and harmonious image

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Entry to the Imperial City of Beijing is through the Gates Of Heavenly Peace and suddenly the largest square in the world becomes a contemporary symbol of the enormity of China and the irresistible fascination, both ancient and modern, of its people, history and culture. The Forbidden City, home to 24 Emperors of the Ming and Qing Dynasties, is a supreme spectacle of power, and the enormous dimensions of the Emperor's Palace demonstrate the Emperor's time-honoured function as being mediator between Heaven and Earth. The Emperor's Garden, The Confucius Temple, The Garden of Harmonious Unity, The Perfumed Mountain and The Temple of the White Pagoda, are but a few of the enchanting names associated with China's most enigmatic, yet revealing, city
Venice( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The historice lagoon city of Venice stands on several islands joined together by a mutitude of bridges, and a canal system in place of streets. The palaces that lie along the Grand Canal represent Venetian power and influence over the centuries. Gothic building artistry and Baroque affluence meet head-on in this grand and noble city which overflows with nostalgia. Less than an hour by boat from Venice and a bisit to Burano, where fishing and lace-making prevail and Murano, famous for its glass-blowers. Three golden centuries of peace and prosperity mad Venice into a glamorous, fairytale city like no other. 120 churches, 400 bridges--this watery landscape is without equal. The 11th century Basilica Di San Marco is surely one of the most famous squares in the world. And there's Carnival, too ... a chance to wear a mask of Casanova, as well as a good excuse for food and wine. Napoleon described Venice as "Europe's most beautiful meeting place."
Stonehenge, Wilshire, England( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the south of England, amidst the hills of Wiltshire, surrounded by woodland and mature trees, stands the most significant prehistoric example of Megalithic culture, Stonehenge. Looking almost as it must have done more than 4000 years ago at the time of the New Stone Age and Bronze Age, here Man created a shrine for a deity dedicated to a religion based upon nature and sun worship. Like gates built by Titans, these gigantic stones take us back to the Dark Ages. Global treasures, History's most protected monuments, Heritage is our legacy from the past, what we live today, and what we pass on to future generations. Our cultural and natural heritage are both irreplaceable sources of life and inspiration. Places as unique and diverse as the wilds of East Africa's Serengeti, the Pyramids of Egypt, the Great Barrier Reef in Australia and the Baroque cathedrals of Latin America make up our world's heritage

Budapest, capital of Hungary, is the pearl of the Danube and a constantly changing metropolis. Hungary was once a kingdom but then came the Turks who were followed by the Hapsburgs and Maria Theresia who became "Queen of Hungary." The historic centre of Budapest is dominated by its noble castle that towers above the banks of the Danube. A one hundred metre long cable railway that dates back to 1870 is both a practical and fascinating way to ascend the hill to the castle. Each day the area around the castle, the Fischerbastel, attracts large numbers of tourists. Margareten Island is set amid the Danube and is Budapest's vast entertainment area. It was at its most colourful during the Romantic period on the 18th and 19th centuries when it was a meeting place for poets, philosophers and artists. A small hotel was built for its creative community and it became an island of artists and dreamers

China's Imperial City is located in the centre of its ancient Middle Kingdom, a gigantic and inscrutable empire beyond the Great Wall. The Imperial City is entered through the Gates of Heavenly Peace. After seven years of construction, Ming Emperor Zhu Di moved into his newly established palace complex in which over eight thousand people lived in almost a thousand rooms. The palace served as both a residential and governmental seat to the emperors of the Ming and Qing Dynasties. A stone's throw away from the old Summer Palace is the Garden of Harmonious Unity that was the favourite garden of the Emperor's household who retreated to its cool lakeside shores during the humid months of summer. Close to Badaling the Great Wall Of China extends majestically across misty mountains. It is the largest Man made structure in the world and was erected to protect the country from invasion from the North

Carinthia is Austria's southernmost region and borders both Italy and Slovenia. It is located in the sunny heart of Europe with more than a thousand lakes plus spectacular alpine regions and numerous Celtic Roman excavation sites, medieval castles, monasteries and cathedrals. In the eastern part of Carinthia and more than a thousand metres above sea level is one of the region's oldest historical villages, the mountain village of Diex. In the fifteenth century the Turks invaded the area with great savagery thus, as protection, local farmers built castellated churches in which they sought sanctuary. Friesach, Carinthia's oldest city, has retained what must be the true ambience of the Middle Ages, with a fortified princely estate and churches and monasteries that are surrounded by sturdy walls and a moat. The Maria Saal Open Air Museum is situated in the heart of Carinthia
