Trier

Here are some pictures from our trip to Trier, Germany, the oldest city in Germany. All photos taken by Brad on his new Pentax camera!

These photos are of the Porta Nigra the gate to the Roman
city of Trier.

Had to stop and get some carmel ice cream!

The Aula Palatina built by emperor Constantine in 310 AD


The ceiling of the church

These are statues of Jesus and four disciples. During WWII the allied
forces attacked Trier destroying the Aula Palatina and the statues inside.

What an interesting blog, introduced by a thought-provoking photo. The unusual wall painting of the dwellings is also a strangely modern interpretation. Something like this hieroglyphic view of a park by Swiss painter Paul Klee, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT475.
The image can be seen at wahooart.com who can supply you with a canvas print of it.
