L'ho incontrato per caso in un romanzo giallo, "Un piede in due scarpe" di Bruno Morchio. In questo forte isolato giungono dopo una salita impervia lo psicologo Bruno Morchio e la bella Marvhesa. Dunque ho deciso di vederlo. Stupendo. Anche e soprattutto per il panorama mozzafiato.

I forti di Genova sono bellissimi, da lassù si gode un panorama meraviglioso, specialmente al tramonto

Impressive fortress. Unfortunately, unlike the Forte Diamante and Forte Fratello Minore, it's completely closed.

Lincoln Memorial

The Lincoln Memorial is an American national monument built to honor the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. It is located on the western end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., across from the Washington Monument. The architect was Henry Bacon and the designer of the primary statue was Daniel Chester French.

Dedicated in 1922, it is one of several monuments built to honor an American president. It has always been a major tourist attraction and since the 1930s has been a symbolic center focused on race relations.

The building is in the form of a Greek Doric temple and contains a large seated sculpture of Abraham Lincoln and inscriptions of two well-known speeches by Lincoln, 'The Gettysburg Address' and his 'Second Inaugural Address'. The memorial has been the site of many famous speeches, including Martin Luther King's 'I Have a Dream' speech, delivered on August 28, 1963, during the rally at the end of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

Since 2010, approximately 6 million people visit the memorial annually.
