Juselius Mausoleum

Pori, Finland

The Juselius Mausoleum is located in Käppärä cemetery. F.A. Juselius, a mining counsellor had the mausoleum built to commemorate the death of his 11-year-old daughter. It was completed in 1903. The 30 meters high mausoleum is designed by Josef Stenbäck and it represents the Gothic Revival style.

The original frescos, painted by the artist Akseli Gallen-Kallela, were later destroyed. The wall paintings seen today are the work of artist Jorma Gallen-Kallela, who painted them in his father's style.

Rauhallinen, vaikuttava ja avaava muistomerkki.

Taidetta.. kakkien paras. Rikkautta on ollut ennen ja varmasti köyhyyttä.

Medieval Walls of Avila

The city walls of Avila were built in the 11th century to protect the citizens from the Moors. They have been well maintained throughout the centuries and are now a major tourist attraction as well as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visitors can walk around about half of the length of the walls.

The layout of the city is an even quadrilateral with a perimeter of 2,516 m. Its walls, which consist in part of stones already used in earlier constructions, have an average thickness of 3 m. Access to the city is afforded by nine gates of different periods; twin 20 m high towers, linked by a semi-circular arch, flank the oldest ones, Puerta de San Vicente and Puerta del Alcázar.
