  • Photo of the day @sophiegauthreaux Hôtel de Rohan, Paris. ⠀ Отель Роган был построен по проекту архитектора Пьера-Алексиса Деламера (Pierre-Alexis Delamair) в 1705 году для кардинала Субиза (Cardinal de Soubise) рядом с отелем Субиз (hôtel de Soubise) в Париже. ⠀ Отель Субиз принадлежал Анне де Роган-Шабо (Anne de Rohan-Chabot), любовнице короля Людовика XIV. Предполагается, что ее сын, Арман Гастон Максимилиан де Роган (Armand Gaston Maximilien de Rohan), был сыном Людовика. Но официально король не признал его, а муж Анны, Франсуа де Роган, принц Субиз (François de Rohan, prince de Soubise), за большое вознаграждение признал этого сына своим. ⠀ Именно этот сын в 1704 году становится епископом Страсбургским, а в 1712 году становится кардиналом, а затем великим капелланом Франции. Он поручает архитектору Деламеру возвести отель, достойный его положению в обществе. ⠀ Для строительства фасада отеля, обращенного в сад, на запад, Деламер выбирает классический вариант оформления - 13 пролетов (окон) на трех этажах, а в центре выступающий фасад с колоннами, увенчанный треугольным фронтоном. Два пролета по 3 и по 2 окна на каждом конце слегка отступают, чтобы придать этому длинному фасаду больше рельефа. ⠀ Сегодня отель принадлежит Национальному архиву Франции. ⠀ #hotelderohan #archivesnationales #marais #leroilouisxiv #history #france #17thcentury #grandsiecle #leroisoleil #louislegrand #thesunking #louisxiv #amazing #instagood #instacool #historicalplace #amazing_shots #photooftheday #picoftheday

  • What started today as a fence post hole or six turned into an archeological dig ⛏ Look what we found in just one small shallow hole. In fact we have found some pieces of really early earthenware, crockery and glass from varying spots in the back garden area up to 40m apart !! We are treasuring each place we turn over the soil, and recording what we find where 📝 #archeologylovers #historicalplace #farmhistory #lovewhereyoulive

  • "Bridge is constructed as a simple, unadorned, single majestic arch on two rocks at the narrowest point of the creek. At 34.2 m (112 ft) clear span, the structure is quite possibly the second largest extant Roman arch bridge. It is 120 m (390 ft) long and 7 m (23 ft) wide. ............. The bridge was rebuilt by the Legio XVI Gallica, garrisoned in the ancient city of Samosata (today Samsat) to begin a war with Parthia. Commagenean cities built four Corinthian columns on the bridge, in honor of the Roman Emperor Lucius Septimius Severus (193–211), his second wife Julia Domna, and their sons Caracalla and Publius Septimius Geta as stated on the inscription in Latin on the bridge.[3] Two columns on the Kâhta side are dedicated to Septimius Severus himself and his wife, and two more on the Sincik side are dedicated to Caracalla and Geta, all in 9–10 m in height. Geta's column, however, was removed after his assassination by his brother Caracalla, who damned Geta's memory.

The Severan Bridge is situated within one of the most important national parks in Turkey, which contains Nemrut Dağı with the famous remains of Commagene civilization on top, declared as World Cultural Heritage site by UNESCO. In 1997, the bridge was restored. Vehicular traffic was restricted to 5 tons or less. The bridge is now closed to vehicles, and a new road bridge has been built 500 m (550 yd) east of the old bridge."
