colorful dili, Timor leste, Portuguese style #trip #portugal #timorleste #colonial
Hô Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
C'est un bâtiment que les Français ont construit pendant l'occupation du pays. Aujourd'hui il sert de bureau de Poste principal de Saigon. Quand on voit l'architecture du reste de la ville, on se doute rapidement que ce n'est pas d'inspiration locale ! 😊

It's a building that French built during the occupation of the country. Today, it is the central post office. When you look at the other buildings in the town, there is no doubt that this one was not designed by the locals ! 😊

Nuwara Eliya, also known as Little England, was the hill side #retreat for the British colonists. Even today you get to see a lot of the buildings retain features of the #colonial period. | #AWeekInSriLanka

Blown away by this work at #campbelltownartscentre by Lisa Reihana. She has brought a French wallpaper from 1804 to life in an incredible panoramic video. Go see it if you can. Other works in the show are also brilliant and moving. It's well worth the trip #painting #video #colonial #wallpaper #nz #sydney #immersive

Cada 21 de enero #RepublicaDominicana se viste de #fiesta porque celebra la fiesta de su querida patrona “Nuestra Señora de Altagracia”, una advocación mariana que tiene sus orígenes en la época #colonial y que muestra el #amor de la Sagrada #Familia.

La #Virgen de la #Altagracia, también conocida como “Tatica, la de Higüey”, es una #pintura que muestra la escena del #nacimiento de Jesús, en la que María contempla con dulzura al #Niño en el pesebre. La #Madre de #Dios está cubierta por un manto azul salpicado de #estrellas y un blanco escapulario cierra por delante sus vestidos.

La cabeza de la Virgen está enmarcada por un esplendor con doce estrellas y sostiene una corona dorada añadida a la pintura original. Un poco hacia atrás se ve a San José, quien observa a su familia y los rayos de la estrella de Belén caen hacia el hombro derecho de María.

Se dice que el cuadro pintado al óleo fue traído de España por los hermanos Alfonso y Antonio Trejo, quienes pertenecían al grupo de los primeros europeos de la isla. Ellos se mudaron a la ciudad de Higüey y con el tiempo ofrecieron la imagen a la parroquia para que todos pudieran venerarla.

White Town is an area in Pondicherry where one would find French buildings and houses built during colonial era. During the French rule, this area was mostly occupied by French officials & people, hence the name 'White Town'. Years after the independence from French, this locality still boasts those old buildings, most of which converted into Heritage hotels and restaurants, and silent streets - a beautiful place for early morning and late night walks.

Most of old buildings in old town Semarang remain as they were despite daily use. Numerous companies, banks and restaurants and cafes are running at those buildings.
