Lalonquette Gallo-Roman Museum

Lalonquette, France

Located in Northern Bearn in the Atlantic-Pyrenees, the gallo-roman museum of Lalonquette traced the history of a rural gallo-roman house build during the first century and which developed until the fifth century of our era. Supported by an elaborated museography depicting the restored mosaics and thanks to a playful approach illustrated by showcases of the collections, the museum offers to discover the specificities of the villa through several themes (day to day life, aristocratie, agriculture, architecture, etc.).

Un bon aperçu d'un lieu historique avec, à la fin, un film qui explique la vie de l'époque et l'évolution de celle-ci comme du bâtiment.

Nous venons de visiter le musée, très instructif et bien organisé tant pour les scolaires que pour les adultes. Je n'en dirai pas autant pour la villa: c'est loin d’être toujours parlant,les panneaux virtuels sont intéressants, mais un point est déroutant: le plan de la partie concernée devrait être proposé au regard avec la même orientation que sa situation sur le terrain, au lieu d'être toujours présenté dans la même position par rapport à la longueur/largeur du panneau.Cela demande un effort d'imagination pas toujours évident pour effectuer mentalement la rotation nécessaire... On regarde le plan, on regarde le site, on l'identifie aussitôt... Une modification partielle ne devrait pas être hors de prix? Et quel confort!

Narikala Castle

Narikala is an ancient fortress overlooking Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, and the Kura River. The fortress consists of two walled sections on a steep hill between the sulphur baths and the botanical gardens of Tbilisi. On the lower court there is the recently restored St Nicholas church. Newly built in 1996–1997, it replaces the original 13th-century church that was destroyed in a fire. The new church is of 'prescribed cross' type, having doors on three sides. The internal part of the church is decorated with the frescos showing scenes both from the Bible and history of Georgia.

The fortress was established in the 4th century and it was a Persian citadel. It was considerably expanded by the Umayyads in the 7th century and later, by king David the Builder (1089–1125). Most of extant fortifications date from the 16th and 17th centuries. In 1827, parts of the fortress were damaged by an earthquake and demolished.
