Located about 11 kilometres north of Catania, it is the perfect little commune to visit during the ottobrata – the local festivity that occurs every October here in Sicily, celebrating the fruits of the land: frutti di terra. The first encounter went wrong already 🙂 Approaching the booth with fruit, I have noticed quince – one […]
Taking the historical first railroad from Manchester to Liverpool, opened 1830 I arrived shortly to this beautiful city.
The train station impressed me:
And just across is St George’s Hall. It is a building in Neoclassical style which contains concert halls and law courts.
I didn’t enter but continue my way towards Worls Museum, Walker Art Gallery and Central Library.
In front of the Library at its entrance is this floor written with famous fairytailes. Ufortunately I haven’t find the one about Red Riding Hood but there was this Lonely Hearts Club… 🙂
Liverpool Town Hall stands as an outstanding and complete example of late Georgian decoration (18th century).
Walking down the street I ended up at docks with beautiful buildings and museums. The River Mersey is just there before it faces the Atlantic ocean.
Remember the song Gerry and Pacemakers: Ferry cross the Mersey, from 1958? 🙂 Or You’ll Never Walk Alone?
And Beatles? As this is their hometown… and everything else in this city is just about them. 🙂
At the Albert dock I visited Museum of Liverpool which explains the industrial revolution of the city, the explosion of the pop culture in the 20th century and football.
Taking about the pop culture, the city’s first was her: Lita Roza. I was so glad. (the feminist in me hails). 🙂
And then this bird everywhere I went…
I took some photos of the docks by walking down the river. The chimneys whitness factory history and bricks are everywhere around you look.
In Liverpool you can find the biggest Cathedral in United Kingdom. The cathedral is the 5th biggest in the world, built on St James’s Mount in 20th century.
I finshed my day by visiting pubs area, more specifically The Caverns Club where Beatles first performed as a local band. The pub is nice museum with live shows and many tribute to songs are on. You can see photos of Beatles on the walls, their disco boards, photo of princ Charles andCamila visiting the pub or buy Beatles t-shirt as you are walking around with your beer.
I was impressed by the age of people in the club, twisting like they are in their best ages. 🙂 The spirit there is really amazing!
You can see the video of the atmosphere on my Facebook Blog page or Instagram as I was attending the Tribute to Beatles show.
And yes the entire pub district is about them:
