Four splendid views, Gattina!
I have been to Brussels many many years ago: I remember well the Grand Place which has really a great charm.

Hi Gattina :)

As always, your entry is stunningly beautiful. Well done. I love seeing your gorgeous photos of Europe, I hope one day I will be able to see it in person.

Always, Carly

The old places in Europe truly make some of our old ones in the U.S. seem very new and recent! Beautiful pictures of the wonderful spots near you!

The building are so grand but the "flower carpet" is amazing. I would love to go there and take about a zillion pictures. That is truly amazing! Thanks for sharing it.

I guess the challenge in Europe would be to find a modern building or a skyscraper. LOL

The first shot you posted reminded me of the Louvre actually.

Cool pix thanks for sharing.

I knew I could count on you for buildings that are centuries older tan anything in Tucson! My favorite shot is the last one, with that huge garden looking like a carpet.
