#Chocolate #Hotel Northern #Portugal

#Chocolate #Hotel Northern #Portugal | Lisbon Lifestyle | Scoop.it
In Viana do Castelo, in northern Portugal, there is a place that must be a chocolate lover’s dream come true. It is the old Avianense Chocolate Factory,...

Signs of the chocolate experience abound in the building design.  Brickwork resembles chocolate bar squares, and thick, goo-y liquid seems to ooze from ceilings and walls.

Mary H Goudie's insight:

#Vacation #Hotel for Chocoholics way too cool for words, or should I say lip smacking with the sweetest of dreams.

Mary H Goudie's insight:

Christ the King #Lisbon, black marble cross originally from the shrine of #Fatima bows down in homage to #Christ. Rio's look-a-like statue is named Christ the Redeemer so don't get confused. A three way connection links Fatima, Christ the King and the Basilica of Estrela which is our Portuguese equivalent to the Paris Sacre Coeur. Lisbon's beautiful white domed monument is a late Baroque monument that sits high on one of the cities many hill and was constructed nearly one hundred year earlier that its sister church in the French capital.

Fun Friday Before The Internet

Fun Friday Before The Internet | Lisbon Lifestyle | Scoop.it

GIFs are widely regarded as an Internet-age phenomenon. So, it might surprise you that more than 150 years before you saw your first "Mean Girls" GIF, people were also watching split-second, hypnotic and repetitive animations, also presumably to avoid doing their homework.

Lisbon Architecture Triennale: strictly no buildings allowed

Lisbon Architecture Triennale: strictly no buildings allowed | Lisbon Lifestyle | Scoop.it
From sofas that swallow you up to a 3D-printed coral reef, the Triennale explores architecture beyond building. But is it all a bit too irreverent?

 

Staged in the blacked-out bowels of the former turbine hall, the scenes of Future Perfect  unfold like tableaux in a fairground ghost ride. In one corner, a group of suspended 3D-printing robots, developed by the MIT Media Lab , will soon begin spewing out quick-drying poly-filler, each nozzle working with the others to build an indeterminate digital coral reef.
