Temple Neuf

Metz, France

Temple Neuf ('New Temple') is a Protestant church in Metz. It is located on place de la Comédie (next to Opéra-Théâtre), at the center of the Jardin d'Amour on the southwestern edge of Île du Petit-Saulcy, which is surrounded by the Moselle.

The church was built by Glod, with the first stone being laid on 25 November 1901 (when Metz was a part of the German Empire), following plans by architect Conrad Wahn. It was inaugurated as the Neue evangelische Kirche on 14 May 1904 in the presence of Wilhelm II, German Emperor, and his wife Augusta Victoria of Schleswig-Holstein. The church is an example of Romanesque Revival architecture.

Metz is a very small city but Temple Neuf is worth to see during night.

Extremely beautiful church . The only thing i did not like is that they allow cars to park in the front.

Broch of Gurness

The Broch of Gurness is an Iron Age broch village. Settlement here began sometime between 500 and 200 BC. At the centre of the settlement is a stone tower or broch, which once probably reached a height of around 10 metres. Its interior is divided into sections by upright slabs. The tower features two skins of drystone walls, with stone-floored galleries in between. These are accessed by steps. Stone ledges suggest that there was once an upper storey with a timber floor. The roof would have been thatched, surrounded by a wall walk linked by stairs to the ground floor. The broch features two hearths and a subterranean stone cistern with steps leading down into it. It is thought to have some religious significance, relating to an Iron Age cult of the underground.

The remains of the central tower are up to 3.6 metres high, and the stone walls are up to 4.1 metres thick.
