Picture taken from tumblir. First posted by JJ in Pictures of Grey.
Unfortunately it is not clear what building this picture shows.
Google assumes it is Reggia di Venaria, Venaria Reale. Probably Malta.
I'll see if I can get more information.

An amazing interior. Yet the open door is a distraction, taking the eye off the detail.

I have seen pictures of the interior of English cathedrals in flamboyant Gothic style - a fantastic impression.
But curiously enough I can't find a good picture. Can anyone help?


That's a detail and a first glimpse of Gothic flamboyant style.
But one has to see the whole interior of such a church. It is
an overwhelming impression.

Thanks, IMR. I've seen these pictures. They are normal Gothic.
But not that impressive flamboyant style I'm looking for.

The ancient Caracala Baths in Rome

Once I have seen an impressive picture of these baths, a reconstruction, but I can't find it on the Internet.
In any case, the ancient Romans were master builders.

Reggia de Venaria Reale, Galleria die Diana

Now I have found out where this picture belongs to.
This is one of the most beautiful palaces of Italy, comparable to French Versailles.
This palace is in a Italian community by the name of Venaria, near Turin.
The palace was restored at immense cost and is Unesco World Heritage.

Youtube video
The first part of this video gives an impression of this palace
and its gardens. In Italian. Only the first two thirds of the
video are about the palace.

From Unesco WH
The Baroque palace of Venaria Reale, built by the Savoy dynasty outside the city of Turin,
has been re-opened to the public after eight years of restoration works. The palace is one of a group of buildings
inscribed on the World Heritage List in 1997 as the Residences of the Royal House of Savoy.

Excalies and Rogermue, thank you for posting all the pictures of architecture. You went through a lot of trouble, and spent a lot of time looking for them. I very much enjoyed them, and I am sure others have, as well. I loved the little castle by the water.

Hello Miriam,
I'm glad to hear that you liked those pictures. There are three of those tiny castles in the Nymphenburg Park.
They are really charming.
In German they are called "Lustschlößchen". The German word consists of the elements Lust meaning pleasure, Schloß castle, and -chen, a diminutive ending meaning little. I have to look up what the real English word for it is. - Ah, I see, pons.eu really has difficulty with "Lustschlößchen". For Lustschloß they have summer residence but that doesn't hit the German idea.

I don't really know what these tiny castles really were used for in their time - guess around 1670 and later - but I think the lady or ladies of the castle spent some time in summer in the large park - consisting of a French part and another part in English style that is it is a natural park with small creeks and lakes, woods and meadows - and after the walk they had some refreshments in those tiny castles, probably attended by a lot of servants who served food and drinks and musicians. - Well, that's my guess. I really should try to find some information about that question.
But these tiny castles are really cosy and the interior design is wonderful - simply charming.
Ah, now I see another German term: Parkschlösschen - that can be translated as tiny park castle.
Castle Nymphenburg was a present of the Bavarian Duke to his wife, a lady of the house of Savoy when she gave birth to a male successor to the throne. Nymphenburg is one of the great European castles just as Versailles or the Venaria Reale in Italy, which was the residence of the Savoy dynasty.

My special thanks to JJ and Excaelis for their fine contributions.
It's more fun when other contribute, too, and comment as did Miriam.
Thank you, Miriam.

PS
I've looked at the pictures of Castell Coch, posted by Excaelis.
Wow, that's really a sight one has to know.
I'll try to get some more information.

Magnificent, this rock church. What a wonderful idea
to build a cave church. Somehow it remembers of the first
Christians in Rome who assembled in the catacombs.

Hello Excaelis, I think about the pronunciation
of Castell Coch. Is it a Schottish ch as in Loch Ness or in German
ach/Bach? Somewhere I have a phonetic dictionary by Daniel Jones,
but I have to stand up and look around where it is. Found it! - and at its place, astonishing.
But Daniel Jones who has almost everything has no entry. But my edition is from 1986.

It is not as magnificent as those that you have posted, but I think the violet colored window is beautiful.

Sorry, the music is not adequate, but this is the nicest presentation of the Peleş Castle (I'd rather call it a palace) I've been able to find.
