Castillo de Colomares by pingallery
Castillo de Colomares
Castillo de Colomares in Benalmádena (Spain), according to the Guinness Book of records, is the largest monument, with an area of 1,500 square meters which was dedicated of the discovery to America.

Without plans, only with his vision, formed Dr. Esteban Martín y Martín with the aid of two bricklayers, between 1987 and 1994 a building which (Byzantine, Romanesque, Gothic and Moorish) brings together virtually all architectural styles in an impressive symbiosis.

The castle is a replica of the three caravels (Santa Maria, Pinta and Nina), with which Columbus sailed to America, represents. During the tour of the castle, you will discover even those with just 1.96 square meters, the smallest chapel in the world. Castillo de Colomares, a dreamlike place for amateur photographers.


Castillo de Colomares in Benalmádena (Spanien),  laut dem Guiness Buch der Rekorde, ist mit 1.500 Quadratmetern das größte Denkmal, das der Entdeckung Amerikas gewidmet wurde. 

Ohne Pläne, nur mit seiner Vision, formte Dr. Esteban Martín y Martín mit Hilfe von zwei Maurern, zwischen 1987 und 1994 ein Bauwerk, welches so ziemlich alle architektonischen Stilarten (byzantinisch, romanisch, gotisch und maurisch) in einer eindrucksvollen Symbiose vereint. 

Das Schloss stellt eine Nachbildung der drei Karavellen (Santa Maria, Pinta und Nina), mit denen Kolumbus nach Amerika segelte, dar. Beim Rundgang durch das Schloss, entdeckt man auch die mit gerade einmal 1,96 Quadratmetern, die kleinste Kapelle der Welt. Castillo de Colomares ist ein traumhafter Ort für Hobby-Fotografen.

We see ourselves

Hello dear friends,

maybe you were even in this situation, where I am now.
I can not properly explain, but missing these days me any motivation to photograph and to edit the photos.
The many beautiful images that I have captured during my holiday with the camera, must unfortunately
still wait some time, since I will withdraw myself to a break.
I will miss my dear friends, but hopefully am I soon again here.

PS: Excuse for my bad English! *(ړײ)*
