Found this gem of a sea food resturant just by chance in Malaga on our fifth visit to the city. We loved it straight away, from the quality of the food, the atmosphere and the friendly service. Brilliant eating and drinking , sitting in a side alley in the heat of the night. Just by chance we met a family from Wales who loved the resturant too. We will be certainly visiting this resturant again next time in Malaga. Can't wait.

A stunning church with very ornate and unusual ceiling. It also has a fabulous brick tower to the front and some marvellous side chapels.

The church was beautiful, it looks small from the outside. The altars inside are stunning and we'll worth a visit.

I was lucky to meet Antonio Banderas at this church

When I went on holiday to the Gran Canaria, we went on a bus tour where we stopped off at this beautiful Cathedral. Breathtaking. I recommend it to anybody and everybody.

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.
