🥇 What makes Rethymno unique: The old renaissance town!! by @zkalemiss
The historic old town of Rethymno is one of the most well-preserved cities of the Renaissance. It was built in the 12th century by the Venetians and was almost completely destroyed in 1572 by Uluj Ali the Ottoman pirate and pasha, regent of Algeria who conquered the city. During the Ottoman rule, many Ottoman buildings were added to the city's architecture, which today composes this magical image that visitors face, feeling that they are in a city with two different cultures.
🥈 Feeling Uninspired - Take A Walk by @teodora
Hadleigh Castle was initially closed when I arrived, so I walked down towards the Two Tree Island. I met a lot of people hiking today, it was much more crowded than I would expect, all of us taking care to not cross to close to each either in the usual polite British way. What I love about the countryside and the people in the mountains is that they always greet you when you pass by. People in the city, even neighbors they seem to forgot their ruts
🥉 Poggioreale - abandoned town in Sicily. by @deepresearch
In many places alleys and stairs were completely taken over by weeds and young trees, it brought to my mind visions of post-apocalyptic future in the world without people, the atmosphere there is really unique. Back in the past, I have visited many abandoned places, factories, hospitals, warehouses, but the whole town is something different. Urban tissue shaped organically by many generations turns dead overnight, you really can feel the doom in this place.
