Belle collégiale restaurée sur l'île!

Mai degrabă catedrală gotică decât o simplă biserică, situată pe insula de pe Sena undeva la sud de centrul orașului, dar din păcate închisă vizitelor. Pentru asta dau doar patru stele. Încă o ciudățenie, faptul că practic e zid în zid cu închisoarea orașului.

Bien située sur les bords de la Seine, une belle collégiale à l'architecture intéressante.

Joli endroit adjacent à un petit parc en bord de Seine.

Having to wrestle your 2yo away from the desperate claws of a twisted child abusing psycho priest during a batism is an experience not soon forgotten. A disgusting despicable act of cruelty that was caught on tape and managed to traumatize children all over the world.

Trencín Castle

Trenčín Castle is relatively large renovated castle, towering on a steep limestone cliff directly above the city of Trenčín. It is a dominant feature not only of Trenčín, but also of the entire Považie region. The castle is a national monument.

History of the castle cliff dates back to the Roman Empire, what is proved by the inscription on the castle cliff proclaiming the victory of Roman legion against Germans in the year 179.

Today’s castle was probably built on the hill-fort. The first proven building on the hill was the Great Moravian rotunda from the 9th century and later there was a stone residential tower, which served to protect the Kingdom of Hungary and the western border. In the late 13th century the castle became a property of Palatine Matúš Csák, who became Mr. of Váh and Tatras.

Matúš Csák of Trenčín built a tower, still known as Matthew’s, which is a dominant determinant of the whole building.
