Château d'Aubiry

Céret, France

Industrial Frenchman Pierre Bardou-Job became wealthy selling rolling paper and decided to have a château built for each of his three children. All designed by the Danish architect Viggo Dorph-Petersen, the Château d'Aubiry was for his son Justin and built from 1893 to 1904. Pierre Bardou-Job himself never saw it, as he died suddenly in 1892 just before the start of the construction. The palace has an Art Nouveau style interior. The English park has pavilions, a swimming pool, terraces and greenhouses.

Unfortunately this castle part of the Job's family heritage is in a bad state and rusty ... such a shame to leave it to die ! Same remarks for the cellar buildings nearby Irritating

Le château n est visible que de l extérieur. C est dommage qu un tel joyau ne soit visible sue par sa parure extérieure et que son écrin intérieur soit résolument fermé au public. De plus, de loin, les serres, même dzns un état déplorables, sont ourement majestueuses, à hauteur de leur maître d oeuvre qu est Eiffel..

Historic City of Trogir

The historic city of Trogir is situated on a small island between the Croatian mainland and the island of Čiovo. Since 1997, it has been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites for its Venetian architecture.

Trogir has 2300 years of continuous urban tradition. Its culture was created under the influence of the ancient Greeks, and then the Romans, and Venetians. Trogir has a high concentration of palaces, churches, and towers, as well as a fortress on a small island. The orthogonal street plan of this island settlement dates back to the Hellenistic period and it was embellished by successive rulers with many fine public and domestic buildings and fortifications. Its beautiful Romanesque churches are complemented by the outstanding Renaissance and Baroque buildings from the Venetian period.

Trogir is the best-preserved Romanesque-Gothic complex not only in the Adriatic, but in all of Central Europe. Trogir's medieval core, surrounded by walls, comprises a preserved castle and tower and a series of dwellings and palaces from the Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque periods. Trogir's grandest building is the church of St. Lawrence, whose main west portal is a masterpiece by Radovan, and the most significant work of the Romanesque-Gothic style in Croatia.
