Renaissance is considered one of the most important periods in human history during which humankind introduce some of the greatest cultural and artistic changes. Numerous artists gain prominence in that age, three of whom are considered geniuses whose fame never wanes even until today.
Leonardo Da Vinci
Known not only as a painter, but also as a proficient physicist and anatomist, Leonardo Da Vinci has introduced some of the greatest works to the world of art. Many of his portraits, including the celebrated Mona Lisa, share one unique characteristic rarely found in other paintings in his era: subtle facial expression and glowing faces. This is due to his painting technique that involves painting on linen sheet that is hung overhead by the soft light of the dusk. Sadly, some of his greatest works, including Battle of Anghiari and The Last Supper, are damaged, although restoration of which is remain a persistent effort.
Michelangelo is a well-known poet, sculptor and painter whose works have gained prominence due to their uniqueness. The Pietà, a sculpture and painting of the Virgin Mary mourning over Jesus Christ’s dead body, is considered unique because it looks proportional only if seen from the face of Jesus at eye level. The unusual color intensity of paintings on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel which was revealed in 1989 has renewed interest among worldwide artists to further study his works.
Caravaggio is famous especially because whenever he painted a human body, he paid attention not only to the physical details of the body, but also to its emotional details. This is the reason why many of his famous paintings, such as Saint Francis of Assisi in Ecstasy and St. Jerome, appear to carry deep emotional feeling. An ardent brawler, he was murdered allegedly by one of his enemies.

Lacerda Elevator, Salvador Bahia, BrazilThe elevator itself is one of the popular landmarks in Salvador de Bahia, Brazil. The people of the city and tourists alike take the elevator to get up on the mountain. Once on top you can enjoy one of the best ice creams in the city at a small shop withing the station. This is where the common historical landmarks begin in the city as well after you get on the mountain. During Carnival there are concerts that are held in the square and there is also a carnival route through the area as well. I would highly recommend that you go to Carnival in Salvador as its the Brazil’s Carnival and you get to be with mostly Brazilians rather than tourists.

The Mercedes-Benz Museum houses an incredible amount of automotive history, unexpected surprises, and is in and of itself an absolutely mind blowing architectural space. That being said there are a million and one different posts i could write about it, and none would do it justice fully. So, let’s do this my way and start with my favorite detail… the ELEVATORS are amazing! When you enter the space, you can see straight up to the roof (and a peek at the sunlight coming in) as floors spiral all the way… you could even say the ceiling has a Mercedes-Benz star inspired shape… and then you notice what look three like vertical tracks going up… and these awesome metal pod (with abstract ghost like eyes/shape) moving up and down… it’s surreal. A bit overly concrete feeling (gave me a similar vibe to Oakley HQ’s entrance)… there was something very sterile/scifi feeling about the entrance space. I could have stood there and stared up at the mesmerizing symmetry of it all for ages. So see more close ups of it in action on the next page! (Quoted from notcot.com)
Santa Justa Lift , Lisbon, Portugal
The Santa Justa Lift, also called Carmo Lift, is an elevator/lift in civil parish of Santa Justa, in the historical city of Lisbon, situated at the end of Rua de Santa Justa. It connects the lower streets of the Baixa with the higher Largo do Carmo (Carmo Square.) Since its construction, the Lift has become a tourist attraction for Lisbon as, among the urban lifts in the city, Santa Justa is the only remaining vertical one. Others, including Elevador da Glória and Elevador da Lavra, are funiculars, and the other Lift constructed around the period, the Elevator of São Julião has since been demolished
Bailong Elevator, Zhangjiajie, China
The Bailong Elevator (literally Hundred Dragons Elevator) is a glass elevator built onto the side of a huge cliff in the Wulingyuan area of Zhangjiajie, China that is 1,070 feet (330 m) high. It is claimed to be the highest and heaviest outdoor elevator in the world. Construction of the elevator began in October 1999, and it was opened to the public by 2002. The environmental effects of the elevator have been a subject of debate and controversy, as the Wulingyan area was designated a World Heritage Site in 2002. Operations were stopped for 10 months in 2002-2003, reportedly due to safety concerns, not environmental ones.
Gateway Arch Lift, St. Louis, USA
The ascent to the top of America's tallest monument begins in a futuristic, white pod elevator at the base. The mod design feels like something straight out of "The Jetsons," but the crowning stroke of genius by Finnish architect Eero Saarinen was the addition of glass doors, which reveal the mechanical complexity of the structure's interior as the cars chug up to the observation deck of the 630-foot high wonder. The ride is over in just four minutes, at which point visitors can make their way out to marvel at how tiny the mighty Mississippi River and all of those cars below appear. (Quoted from cnn.com)
Setenil de las Bodegas is a town (pueblo) in the province of Cádiz, Spain, famous for its dwellings built into rock overhangs above the Rio Trejo. According to the 2005 census, the city has a population of 3,016 inhabitants. It has an exact antipodal city: Auckland, New Zealand.
This small town (pueblo) is located 157 kilometres (98 mi) northeast of Cadiz. It has a distinctive setting along a narrow river gorge. The town extends along the course of the Rio Trejo with some houses being built into the rock walls of the gorge itself, created by enlarging natural caves or overhangs and adding an external wall.
Modern Setenil evolved from a fortified Moorish town that occupied a bluff overlooking a sharp bend in the Rio Trejo northwest of Ronda. The castle dates from at least the Almohad period in the 12th century. However, the site was certainly occupied during the Roman invasion of the region in the 1st century AD. Setenil was once believed to be the successor of the Roman town of Laccipo, but it was subsequently proved that Laccipo became the town of Casares in Malaga.
