Backdrop for imagination

The St-Just and St-Pasteur Cathedral (Narbonne Cathedral)
and the neighboring Archbishops’ Palace form a unique architectural ensemble.
Both from outside and inside.

Could be the backdrop of one of the older Alexandre Duma’s adventures.
The world famous french author hadn’t (so far as I know) any relation to Narbonne.

Narbonne in the very southeast of France was established at least 2200 years ago.
Once a prosperous port, and a major city in Roman times.
It is now located about 15 km from the shores of the Mediterranean Sea.

The coastline moved during time, not the city.!

Same style, but different

The inspiration comes from wonderful “Restlessjo” and her “Monday walk” themes.
A short walk in the middle of the northern village Nordby on the danish island Samso.
The target is the architecture of the village as we could call a place of history,
where so many houses are carefully protected in futurum.
Changes require almost unattainable permissions.
