Sunken Palace or Basilica Cistern (Istanbul, Turkey)

Sunken Palace or Basilica Cistern (Istanbul, Turkey)

The Basilica Cistern, or Yerebatan Sarayı (“sunken palace” in Turkish), is the largest covered cistern in Istanbul City. When I entered the cistern, I could not believe it: the place is enormous! At 140 m x 70 m, it could hold 80,000 cubic meters of water. It is supported by 336 columns and many carp and goldfish swim around the base of these columns.

Pont del Petroli (Badalona, Catalonia)

Pont del Petroli (Badalona, Catalonia)

I took this photo a few moments before the sunrise. The bridge is a landmark in Badalona City: the original bridge was a wood structure constructed in 1879 for the local company Suari and Canals to unload petrol from ships. In fact, the name ‘pont del petroli’ literally means ‘oil bridge’.
