📍Porto , Portugal 🇵🇹 💡Interesting facts : 🔸 Citizens of Porto are informally known as “Tripeiros” which literally translates to “animal gutters” This odd name actually has great historical meaning. According to a well-known legend of the 15th century Henry the Navigator needed a lot of supplies for his Conquest of Ceuta. As a result, the city and its citizens gave up all the supplies they had, including all their food up to the last gram of meat. All they had left were the animal “guts” or “tripas” and they did their best to make that work. As a result, a now-famous dish came along called “Tripas à Moda do Porto.” Because of this dish, the citizens of Porto got the nickname of “Tripeiros.” Speaking of typical dishes… 📷: @scwilder Follow @citybestviews for the best urban photo👆 #porto #portugal #streetshot #traveling #urbanphotography #cbviews

📍Taipei , Taiwan 🇹🇼 💡Interesting facts : 🔸When it opened in 2004, the 1667-foot-tall Taipei 101 was the world’s tallest building. Although Dubai’s Burj Khalifa stole the title in 2009, the 101-floor structure (which has an additional five floors underground) now has a different claim to fame, thanks to Popular Mechanics: "World's Toughest Building." A 730-ton damper helps steady the Xinyi Road tower, which sits 660 feet from a fault line on an island often hit by typhoons. Contained inside the massive structure: a 828,000-square-foot mall, including a 1200-seat food court and three-star Michelin restaurant. To ring in 2016, a 238-second, $1.51 million fireworks display, designed by French pyrotechnic company Groupe F, launched from the skyscraper. 📷: @harimaolee Follow @citybestviews for the best urban photo👆

She is buried in the Cathedral and her tomb stone is actually thee altar of the Cathedral. 🔸During the Medieval Times there was a general idea of isolation.
