Galicia, it's the perfect combination of colours. I like it very much because there's a green landscape, water, flowers, churches, villages and bridges made of stone.

 

It offers breathtaking views wherever you go.

The perfect place to enjoy your summers.

I took this photo in Cazorla (Jaén) when we did the Borosa River hiking trail.

This photo was taken in “La Cerrada de Elías”. It is a short walk from Wood that runs along a part of the path.

You can see the crystal water of the River, the mountain rocks and the wooden handrail.

I absolutely love it! Is a beautiful landscape! I liked it very much because we were able to enjoy nature and switch off from the noise, the traffic and the mobile phone for a few days.

 I took this photo in Manhattan, in New York, at Easter holidays last year.

This photo was taken in Rockefeller Center

Located in the center of Midtown Manhattan, Rockefeller Center or Rockefeller Plaza is a complex of 19 commercial buildings.

You can see many flags of different countries.

Rockefeller Center was built for the Rockefeller family and we can find a lot of shops and theaters among others the Radio City Music Hall.

Each year millions of people visit the GE building, because you can enjoy the amazing views in its observatory.

In addition you can practice ice skating in the ice rink and on Christmas you can enjoy the big Christmas tree.

I took this photo in Venice last summer. The photo was taken from Rialto Bridge.

You can see a lot of gondolas and small boats which are sailing along the canal.

Most boats are next to the restaurants and stores. There are other motorized water buses called Vapporeti, by which Venetians can travel around the major canals and between the city´s islands.

Although the weather was awful, I absolutely loved it because of its famous market which was full of tourists.

Venice is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, although I have to say that the water in the canals was quite filthy.

“THE  LOVERS”

 

I took this photo in August when I visited with my family Teruel. In 1555 during some building works in the San Pedro Church the couple’s remains were found together and they were immediately considered Isabel de Segura y Diego de Marcilla (The Lovers of Teruel).

This photo was taken in their Mausoleum, the remains of the Lovers can now be visited in an attached interpreting center of San Pedro Church, in this center exhibition you can have a lot of information about the love story.

MY NAME IS GEMA AND I´M GOING TO TALK ABOUT MY FAVOURITE PHOTO AND PLACE.

FIRST ON MY LAST HOLIDAYS I WENT TO MENORCA WITH MY FRIENDS

WE WENT BY FERRY FROM DENIA TO MENORCA.

I TOOK THIS PHOTO WHEN WE WENT TO COVA D´ EN XOROI.

YOU CAN SEE A BIG PUB IN A CAVE INSIDE A MOUNTAIN.

IN THIS PLACE A BAD PIRATE CALLED XOROI LIVED.

THE PIRATE XOROI WAS HIDDEN IN THE CAVE FOR YEARS

PEOPLE SAY THAT HE STILL LIVES HERE.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT BECAUSE IT IS A MAGICAL PLACE

To begin with, I’d like to tell you something about my trip.

Well, I went to Almuñecar last month. Almuñecar is a beautiful place on the coast in the south of Spain, between Málaga and Granada.

Once there, I did a lot of things such as going sightseeing to visit the landmarks, eating typical food and the most important one: relaxing…

Indeed the hotel was the best. In fact, this hotel is one of the best hotels I've ever been to.

The food was really terrific and the atmosphere very cosy.

To conclude, I must say that the photo was taken from my balcony, there were amazing views.

See you soon!

I took the photo in the summer of 2013 when I was on holiday with my boyfriend and some friends in Calblanque.

I love this photo because it´s mysterious like the place and it reminds me of a lovely holiday. And I have the photo on my phone.

 

BY ANDREA IZQUIERDO, NI1 EOI Mazarrón

I took this photo in Cabra, a small town in the province of Cordoba last July, when I went to a friends’ weeding.

This photo was taken from my hotel room, where I was staying.

You can see a beautiful place with the best facilities to relax (snack bar, swimming pool, sun loungers ...) and it is surrounded by a lot of vegetation.

I like it because I discovered a beautiful place. I want to go back and also, it brings me good memories because I spent a wonderful weekend with my friends.

I’ll repeat

Hello, I would like to talk about a picture, a great landscape that I took when I was in Italy on 2013. This photo was taken in the San Peter Place when I travelled there with my pupils. As you can see, it was a sunny day without any cloud. I really love this place because we visited the Vatican museums, the Basilica of San Peter and, what´s more, there were a lot of journalists and policemen because the next day was the designation of the new Pope, so, it was a very interesting moment in history. I strongly recommend you to visit this country.

I like travelling, so I went on holidays to the United Kingston. In fact, this photo was taken in Bristol. I like this bridge because it is very large and I can see the entire city from the bridge, but when you are on the bridge, It moves, so be careful! Furthermore, there is a river under the bridge, on which the boats sail.

My boyfriend set up in a new company last month, that´s why he is currently living in Madrid. I think Madrid is too far however I understand today the most important thing is work. So, I decided to visit my boyfriend during two weeks in August. We went sightseeing around the city and we visited the most famous places. One of the most beautiful places that I have ever seen was The Debod Temple, you can see it in this photo.  I would like to go to Madrid very soon, perhaps in winter. 

 

BY DORI MADRID, NI1 EOI Mazarrón

One of my favourite  photos is this one of an spectacular village called "Juzcar", which is located on the astonishing mountains of Ronda.

The photo was taken by my husband in the summer of 2010, when we were on holidays. As you can see, Juzcar is a seductive and picturesque blue village surrounded by amazing mountains, where you can admire panoramic views and stunning landscapes.

Apart from that, Juzcar is famous as the fantastic film of  "Pitufos" was filmed in the village and since then there are scores of tourists every year in order to visit the awesome place.

Moreover, I am crazy about this photo as I still remember the peace and quiet. Also, it is the best bet for enjoying  nature because it is far away from the hustle and bustle of  the city. In fact, when you are there, it looks as if you are in Paradise.

Basically, if you are looking for somewhere to relax and breathe fresh  air, definitely, it is a great place.

In addition, you can visit historical sites like the impressive and unique old Church in the centre of the village.

To sum up, whatever your taste in outdoor activities, you will find it here.

 

I hope you like it.

The photo was taken in San José (Cabo de Gata) last October while my boyfriend was doing a half ironman there. It was a place off the beaten track where you can switch off from your daily routine. I still remember the peace and quiet of the town due to the fact that it is far away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It had unspoilt beaches absolutely stunning where you can sunbathe, swim, dive or do snorkeling in its turquoise waters. Moreover, there are scores of bars and restaurants where you can taste delicious sea food rice.

The photo was taken in June 2016. The picture shows the amazing castle of "Disney Land Paris".

 This place is a favorite spot for keeping your memories of the trip. Just looking at it makes me think of returning again there.

As you wander through the park, you get out the child that everybody has inside.

I still remember the ambient music, the characters around the place, the colours...absolutely astonishing.

Although it's a tourist trap and an overwhelming choice, everything is prepared to enjoy your visit and to be entertained, it doesn't mind how old you are.

     After a long period of time in which I was as busy as a bee, I needed some kind of relaxation. I really needed to take a significant break from my day- to- day life. I was looking for a remote, quiet and calm destination in contact with nature. I was looking for a place off the beaten track and far away from the hustle and bustle of the city, so I decided to visit Covadonga Lakes in Asturias.

     As you can see in the photo this is a very peaceful and extremely quiet place. I could enjoy the stunning blue sky and the clear and lovely atmosphere of the mountains, even though by the time I took the photo it was quite foggy; the striking green of the grass; and the huge and incredibly patient cows. There is nothing compared to going for a stroll among the mountains and sightseeing the breath-taking views. The mountains were gorgeous and the lakes spectacular, although because of the season, it was summer, lakes were smaller than I expected they would be.

        The photo was taken from the terraced roof to our hotel in Gran Via, the heart of Madrid.  A marvellous spot to feel the hustle and bustle of the city.

     The stunning street is one of the city's most important shopping areas, with a large number of hotels, restaurants, bars, and large movie theatres. The street is also noted for the grand architecture of many of the buildings.

     It´s a perfect location to visit the  main landmarks of the city; walking distance to “Puerta del Sol”, “Plaza de España”, also it´s a place off the public transport. I recommend the Madrid city tour, a hop-on-hop-off Madrid sightseeing tour.

MARÍA ISABEL PINOS, NA1, EOI MAZARRÓN

 

The photo was taken from the Tibidabo in Barcelona and the views are absolutely astonishing.

Tibidabo is a mountain overlooking Barcelona and on the summit of the mountain, we can find an amusement park.

It is a place off the beaten track and it is far away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

It is a must to visit if you go to Barcelona, since it offers plenty of exciting activities for kids, teenagers and adults.

Regarding Barcelona, it is a very cosmopolitan and culturally diverse city, it has over five million inhabitants, and it is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Spain.

It is quite pricey if you want to visit all its historical buildings, monuments and museums, but it is worth it.

I recommend you to visit this captivating with a wonderfully rich history city.

This is a pic of Badalona. Badalona has been chose as a film set for advertising, music videos, TV and film productions in recent decades.  Here

The Machinist (2004), I am the Juani (2006) or Biutiful (2010) were filmed. Location scouts have had to see something more than that undeserved reputation of neet1 territory and marginality in this suburb of Barcelona. And although the true beauty of Badalone lies in its ugliness, it has a certain industral beauty that defines it better than any other cliché. Personally, I like to walk the itinerary os the train line, crossed bysome pedestrian bridges.

On the left, we have the old Factory CACI2 of Badalona in a modernist and rationalist architectural style (1899). Here cotton was made fothe necks of the shirts, until it was taken up by Campsa in 1928. The exposed brick facade and the skeleton of the building have been preserved and now restored. It was thought to be home of the Comic and Illustration Museum of Catalonia, also it was meant to be a luxurious hotel-spa, a centre for intensive Master's degrees of the University of Barcelona..but the project has been paralyzed for years.

At the bottom, on the left, between the industrial estates and the low quality graffitis, there is a thermal power plant, popularly known as the "Three Chimneys"-which reaches 200 metres and forms part of the emplematic skyline of the Barcelones region.These are settled on a turbine hall and it's the Holy Family of the working class. Ant it is in the process of declaration of Cultural Property of Local  Interest. I believe nobody is considering to set a Tate Modern here.

I like the mixture of bulks of brick and reinforced concrete, majestic in its way, esepecially sumbolic, and the coastal flats that like prosoic pieces of Lego are in the middle of the picture.

        This cosmopolitan scene takes place in Barcelona. The photo was taken from the roof of Las Arenas, a huge mall located in the down-town, which was a bull ring years ago.

This square is a tremendous roundabout whose centre is a marvellous and enormous fountain, what we can see in the foreground. Behind the font, we can eye the Venetian Towers, an important symbol of Barcelona.

In the background, we can spot Montjoic and the Olympic ring. It's easy to observe the successful Olympic cauldron from Barcelona 92. In the left hand corner, we can look at the National Arts museum from Catalonia. Between the museum and the Venetian Towers, we can perceive, a little bit blurred, the awesome Montjuic foundtain, which frequently offers terrific shows mixing water, lights and music.

The photography is a bit out of focus, nevertheless, the scene is a superb and representative point from Barcelona.

THE STONEHENGE

 

by MARÍA ÁNGELES  ÁLAMO MUÑOZ, NA1

 

The photo was taken during my last trip to United Kingdom. I was spending some days in Oxford and I had the opportunity to travel to Stonehenge. I believed it would be a place off the beaten track. But, surprisingly, it was just the opposite. When I arrived there, threre were lots of turists. “It is going to lose all its magic”, I thought. Then, by the time the monument had appeared in front of me I felt absolutely overwhelmed. It was astonishing. Despite the tourists, I still remember the peace and quite. In fact, I think I suffered the Stendhal syndrome. The monument is related to the cult of the sun, and I could take a photo just when the sun went through the megaliths. Definetely, it was amazing, something

I won´t forget in my life.

 

JUANI SÁNCHEZ, NA1 EOI Mazarrón

 

One of my favourite photos is this one, I took it when I was in Segovia for a short time (only a weekend) with my older sister, my brother in law and my boyfriend.

This picture was taken with my mobile phone and it is the Cathedral of Segovia.

The original catedral, called Santa María, was of Romanesque style and is situated opposite the Alcazar.

In 1542, during the War, the old church was destroyed and shortly thereafter Charles V proposed the construction of a new one which was the pride of the all Segovians.

The construction of the building began on 8th June 1525 under the aid of Bishop don Diego de Ribera and the architectural direction of Juan Gil de Hontañon.

Inside, at least 20 chapels are distributed along the Cathedral, its masterpieces are of the highest order and quality. I still remember the peace and quiet in it, although it is situated in the historic old town.

When I took the photo I remember that we went to a restaurant for dinner and celebrated my sister’s birthday. It was a gorgous place with aboslutely astonishing views, overa ll at nights because the lights show a magical building.

I recognize that Segovia is a small city and you can visit it in two days but it has beautiful monuments, delicious foods, etc…even you have enough time to visit other pleces next to Segovia such as San Ildefonso, Pedraza, Cuellas, etc..

This image reminds me of a lovely trip.

 Last November I travelled to Italy and discovered Tuscany. I had the opportunity of taking this panoramic picture which typifies the dramatic views to be experienced. The flora and fauna in the foreground lead your eyes to the magnificient tree and the ruined fort in the near distance.

Tuscany's landscape can be compared to that of many areas of Spain.

This photo was taken at 9.15 last Xmas in Bilbao city. The sun was rising from the east and the fog bank commenced to dissapear and it was freezing. Amazingly, there wasn't pollution. The city had been woken up since 6 a.m., the noises from cars and buses confirmed it.

The sky, with no clouds was bluish.  In the middle of the photo you can see San Mamés stadium, where teh Athletic club of Bilbao plays football and also a motorway crossing the city centre. At night, you can see Iberdrola Tower, the highest building of Bilbao, with more than 60 floors. At the bottom, there is a discoloured red handrail. The rest are apartment buildings.

I still remember the hustle and bustle of that city.

 

 

MARÍA JOSÉ BARRERO, NA1, EOI MAZARRÓN

 

Look closely at this photo. Do you know where it is? Of course, this is one of my favourite photos of the city: Córdoba. Córdoba is an absolutely wonderful city which sits in the south of Spain, where the weather is perfect all year long and the sun shines with an amazing colour.

 

In this picture you can see one of its streets, all is perfect in the city, Everybody takes care of their streets and it’s very difficult to find rubbish on the ground. All its houses are white painted, so there is an incredible light. I also loved the fact that people decorate their houses. The photo shows a lot of kinds of flowers and trees with different colours, which you can see on the walls, on the road, along the streets, and so on.

 

In this case, the predominant colour is blue. For me it’s the best colour, because it makes you feel on cloud nine and relaxed.Moreover, in the middle of the photo, we can see a typical Cordoba’s arch, which was built in the Arabian era.

 

To sum up, it is said that Córdoba and its streets are the most wonderful city in Spain and maybe in the world, and I agree with it.
