Old town.

Visitando Vegueta, el casco antiguo de Las Palmas

I love old towns. Visiting them is like making travel in time. Vegeta, the old town in Las Palmas is not exception. It offers visitors to find interesting items to their taste. In this post, I show some general photos from Vegeta, old town of Las Palmas, Columbus house (Casa de Colón), Cathedral of Santa Ana, Plaza Mayor de Santa Ana in front of the Cathedral, dog sculptures in front of the Cathedral and folk music ensemble in front of the Cathedral.

Columbus house, opened 1951, offers awesome artefacts, such as scale models Columbus’s three ships (Santa Maria, La Niña and Pinta), maps and the second floor is dedicated to art, handwriting sample and route maps. Cathedral of Santa Ana about 500 years old is beautiful building. Dog sculptures in front of Cathedral of Santa Ana, but who sculpted them- mystery, but who scupled them – mystery. There has been discussion about the name of Canary Island. Some thinks that the name come canaries and others that the name comes from dogs. Latin word for dog is canis and nowadays canine is general term for a dog. We stopped for long time to listen folk music ensemble in front of the Cathedral of Santa Ana. Their song was beautiful. The young Lady was clear-voiced and other Ladies in colorful clothes wearing hats, which resembled those Indian hats that, I have seen in Quito, Ecuador.

En español:

Casco antiguo.

Visitando Vegueta, el casco antiguo de Las Palmas

Amo las ciudades viejas. En visitarlos es como viajar a tiempo. Vegeta, el casco antiguo de Las Palmas no es una excepción. Ofrece a los visitantes encontrar artículos interesantes por su gusto. En este post, vos muestro algunas fotos generales de Vegeta, el casco antiguo de Las Palmas, la casa de Colón, la Catedral de Santa Ana, la Plaza Mayor de Santa Ana frente a la Catedral, las esculturas de perros frente a la Catedral y conjunto de música folclórica frente a la Catedral.

La casa Columbus, inaugurada en 1951, ofrece artefactos impresionantes, como maquetas de los tres barcos de Columbus (Santa María, La Niña y Pinta), mapas y el segundo piso está dedicado a muestras de arte, muestras de escritura y mapas de rutas. La Catedral de Santa Ana de aproximadamente 500 años es un hermoso edificio. Esculturas de perros en frente de la Catedral de Santa Ana, pero ¿quién las han esculpidas? – misterio. Se ha discutido sobre el nombre de Canarias. Algunos piensan que el nombre viene de los canarios y otros que el nombre proviene de los perros. La palabra latina para perro es canis y hoy en día el término canino es general para un perro. Nos detuvimos por mucho tiempo para escuchar un conjunto de música folclórica frente a la Catedral de Santa Ana. Su canción fue hermosa. La jovencita tenia la voz clara y otras damas con ropas coloridas con sombreros, que parecían a los sombreros indios que, he visto en Quito, Ecuador.

Vieille ville.

Visitant la vieille ville Vegeta à Las Palmas

J’aime les vieilles villes. En leur rendant visite, ç’est comme faire un voyage dans le temps. Végéta, la vieille ville de Las Palmas n’est pas une exception. Elle offre aux visiteurs de trouver des choses intéressantes à leur goût. Dans ce post, je vous montre quelques vues générales de Vegeta, la vieille ville de Las Palmas, la maison de Colomb (Casa de Colón), la cathédrale de Santa Ana, la Plaza Mayor de Santa Ana en face de la cathédrale, des sculptures de chiens devant la cathédrale et l’ensemble de musique folklorique devant la cathédrale.

La maison Columbus, ouverte en 1951, propose des objets impressionnants, tels que des maquettes de bateaux de Christophe Colomb (Santa Maria, La Niña et Pinta), l’écriture manuscrite de Colomb et des cartes océaniques et le deuxième étage est dédié à l’art. La cathédrale de Santa Ana,qui est environ 500 ans, est un bel immeuble. Les sculptures de chiens devant la cathédrale de Santa Ana, mais par qui été sculptés – mystère. On a beaucoup parlé sur le nom de l’île Canaries. Les uns pensent que le nom vient des canaris et les autres que le nom vient des chiens. Le mot latin pour chien est canis et de nos jours canine est un terme général pour un chien. Nous nous sommes arrêtés longtemps pour écouter l’ensemble de la musique folklorique devant la cathédrale de Santa Ana. Leur musique était belle. La jeune fille avait une voix claire et d’autres femmes portant de vêtements colorés et des chapeaux qui ressemblaient à ces chapeaux indiens que j’ai vus à Quito, en Équateur.

Em Português:

Cidade antiga.

Visitando a cidade velha Vegeta em Las Palmas

Eu adoro as cidades antigas. Visitar-lhes é como fazer viagens no tempo. Vegeta, a cidade velha em Las Palmas não é exceção. Ele oferece aos visitantes itens interessantes de encontrar ao seu gosto. Nesta mensagem, eu vão mostrar-lhe algumas fotos gerais de Vegeta, a cidade velha de Las Palmas, a casa de Colombo (Casa de Colón), a Catedral de Santa Ana, Plaza Mayor de Santa Ana em frente à Catedral, esculturas de cães, em frente à Catedral e finalmente um conjunto de música folclórica.

A casa de Colombo, inaugurada em 1951, oferece incríveis artefatos, como modelos de escala dos três navios de Colombo (Santa Maria, La Niña e Pinta) manuscritos e mapas de rotas de Cristóvão Colombo. O segundo andar é dedicado à arte. A Catedral de Santa Ana cerca de 500 anos de idade é um belo edifício. Esculturas de cães, ninguém sabe quem os fez em frente à Catedral de Santa Ana.Houve discussões sobre o nome da ilha das Canárias. Alguns pensam que o nome vem canários e outros que o nome vem de cães. A palavra latina para cachorro é canis e hoje canino é termo geral para um cachorro. Paramos por muito tempo para ouvir um conjunto de música folclórica em frente à Catedral de Santa Ana. Linda era a sua música. A menina teve com voz clara e outras senhoras em roupas coloridas estão usando chapéus, pareciam aqueles chapéus indianos que, eu vi em Quito, Equador.

Idyllic Kristinestad / Idílica Kristinestad / Kristinestad idyllique

In English:

Krisinestad in Finnish Kristiinankaupunki is small idyllic town on Western coast of Finland. The distance from Helsinki is 333 kilometers / 206 miles. The amount of population is about 7000. I love this town due to its old town area with historic wooden houses with alleys. The town is bilingual, Swedish and Finnish.

I have visited in Kristinestad in 2006 and in 2012. Last 12 photos are from 2006 which I took with my old camera when we returned from our car trip to Nordkapp (Norway). They show old wooden Ulrika Eleonora’s (Queen of Sweden 1688-1741) church. It is from 1700. The bell tower is built in 1702–1704. There was morning fog when I took photos. Last 4 photos show the camping area where we spent the night before driving to our home.

First 34 photos show to You the old town with wooden houses, open-air museum and some views from the town center of Kristinestad.

En español:

Krisinestad en finlandés Kristiinankaupunki es una pequeña ciudad idílica en la costa occidental de Finlandia. La distancia desde Helsinki es de 333 kilómetros / millas 206. La cantidad de población es de aproximadamente 7000. Me encanta esta ciudad debido a su zona vieja con casas históricas de madera con callejones. La ciudad es bilingüe, sueco y finlandés.

He visitado en Kristinestad en 2006 y en 2012. Últimos 12 fotos son de 2006, que tomé con mi cámara vieja cuando volvimos de nuestro viaje en coche a Nordkapp (Noruega). Muestran madera vieja Ulrica Leonor de Suecia (Reina de Suecia 1688-1741) iglesia. Es a partir de 1700. El campanario está construido en 1702-1704. Había niebla de la mañana cuando tomé fotos. Últimos 4 fotos muestran la zona de camping donde pasamos la noche antes de conducir a nuestra casa.

34 primeras fotos muestran a Usted la ciudad vieja con con casas de madera, un museo al aire libre y algunas vistas del centro de la ciudad de Kristinestad.

J’ai visité dans Kristinestad en 2006 et en 2012. 12 derniers photos sont à partir de 2006 que j’ai pris avec mon ancien appareil photo quand nous sommes rentrés de notre voyage en voiture au Nordkapp (Norvège). Ils montrent l’églisé vieille en bois de Ulrique-Éléonore de Suède (reine de Suède 1688-1741). C’est à partir de 1700. Le clocher est construit en 1702-1704. Il y avait du brouillard matin quand j’ai pris des photos. 4 derniers photos montrent terrain de camping où nous avons passé la nuit avant de conduire à notre maison.
