Io facendolo a cavallo e uno spettacolo consiglio a tutti di visitarlo anche solo per il panorama che offre

Secondo me posto unico in Genova,nel verde dove si puo passeggiare,portare i cani a correre,andare a cavallo e chi vuole può organizzare un barbeque in mezzo al verde è situata una nicchia apposta per la brace e un tavolone al coperto.5 stelle perché davvero è un posto da visitare unico tranquillo e dove si respira aria pulita di bosco

Non si riesce a comprendere perché dei Forti di Genova quello di Quezzi è il più vituperato e non raccoglie, come per esempio il Peraltro, le stesse attenzioni. Non a caso solo una strada carrabile esiste per raggiungerlo e anche la Torretta di Quezzi, poco distante, subisce la stessa sorte diventate, entrambe, ovili. Occorrerebbe piu attenzione degli amministratori locali alla zona.

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.
