resonance is the tendency of a system to oscillate with greater amplitude

zugarramurdi witches cave – Sorginen leizeak

 

 
 

Sorginen leizeak 

 
In the western Pyrenees, past Baztan and just a short distance from the French border, lies Zugarramurdi, the village of witches.
 
It passed into history as the setting of alleged occult activity featured in the infamous Basque witch trials held in Logroño in the seventeenth century.
 
The witches met actually outside the cave in the place of Berroskoberro.
 
Some say that the goat talked to its worshippers from a hole in the stone outside the cave.

The river of “hell” crosses along the centre of the cave.
 
It has been eroding the floor of the cave for centuries, the ceiling of the cave is already 12 metres high.

Akelarre used to be celebrated there.
 
Further the river follows a deep gorge called “the cave of the witches”.

Inside the cave, the widest part measures 120 metres.

The Zubizuri

 

 

 

 The Zubizuri

 

(Basque for “white bridge“),

also called the Campo Volantin Bridge or Puente del Campo Volantin,

is a tied arch footbridge across the Nervion River in Bilbao, Basque Country.

Designed by architect Santiago Calatrava,

the bridge links the Campo Volantin right bank and Uribitarte left bank of the river.

Since its opening, it has been subjected to praise as a symbol of the new Bilbao and as a draw for tourism.

Architectural professor Alexander Tzonis wrote:

“The intelligence, vitality, and originality of the bridge’s curved configuration challenged the ordinariness and slow decline of the urban setting, bringing a message of hope and an invitation to imagine better conditions.”

Here for you to cross the Bridge…

Walking around the Guggenheim Bilbao, Basque Country

 

 

 

 

Located on the Bay of Biscay, Bilbao is the fourth largest city in Spain, one of the country’s most important ports,

and a center for manufacturing, shipping, and commerce.

 

An architectural competition led to the selection of California-based architect Gehry,

known for his use of unorthodox materials and inventive forms, and his sensitivity to the urban environment.

Gehry’s proposal for the site on the Nervion River ultimately included features that embrace both the identity of the Guggenheim Museum

and its new home in the Basque Country.

 

Ground-breaking took place in 1993

 

Inauguration in 1997

 

Enjoy the walk!
