Since most of you liked my post about Beautiful Abandoned Places, I decided to make a second post with more marvelous and breath taking pictures.
1. A abandoned castle in Italy, that was found by Dan Marbaix. Known as an urban explorer, he travels the whole world exploring abandoned places. Dan has traveled around the world to capture the most beautiful abandoned buildings. He has been arrested 20 times for trespassing and was even held at gunpoint once in Italy. But after everything he still refuses to give up his search for beautiful abandoned places.
2. Balconies of Miranda Castle, also known as: Chateau de Noisy, in northern Belgium. The Mirianda Castle is a castle from the 19th century Celles in Belgium in the region of the Ardennes. This castle was built in 1866 by the English architect Edward Milner for the Liedekerke-Beaufort family, who had left their previous home, the Vêves castle during the French revolution. This building is planned for demolition during 2015. (This castle is also number 2 in my previous post about ‘Beautiful Abandoned Places’.)
3. Glebe Tram Sheds in Glebe, Sydney. This old tram shed in Glebe Sydney was shut down in 1961. Today the only left over of the once powerful tram system, can be found in the Loftus Tram Museum and out back in their tram shed. The museum has all sorts of interesting information about the trams as well as some restored trams from various years.
4. An abandoned monastery in Belgium, this photo was taken by Odin’s Raven.
5. Castello di Sammezzano, is an abandoned palace in Reggello, Italy. This photo taken by Sylvain Margaine. The Sammezzano castle was built in the 17th Century in the Tuscan town of Reggello. In the 19th century, Marquis Ferdinando Panciatichi Ximenes d’Aragona renovated the interior galleries and combined different styles and currents.The castle was auctioned in 1999 to be converted into a luxury hotel complex, but is was later abandoned.
6. Alla Italia, was a luxury bathhouse in the middle of a center in Belgium. The architecture contained beautiful Italian elements. This building was build between 1862 and 1867, later in 1878 it became more comprehensively. In 2004 a new complex was opened nearby Alla Italia, sadly enough that’s why Alla Italia was closed. Renovations started not long after they closed to transform All Italia into a luxury hotel.
7. A music room in a decaying castle in Belgium. This photo was taken by Ernest Sébastien.
