Pincio, You and I know about your prejudices about Spain. I no doubt about that. I do not think that you hate to Spain but almost.

There's a lot of things that I don't like about Spain, and yes it's true I don't like Madrid but there's a big difference from saying I have prejudice about Spain or I almost hate Spain.

The proof

You should accept that not all people could like all cities in this world. It's the most normal thing in the world. I don't know why every time someone say I don't like this spanish city the Greek tragedy starts.

Please, come back talking about architecture.

Thats not the proof... you almost always speak ill of Spain.

You're the one who speaks bad things about Spain, the rest have the same amount of good and bad opinions. In my opinion you have predjudices about Spain (Do not you think the same?:I don't know why every time someone say I don't like this spanish city the Greek tragedy start. There's a lot of things that I don't like about Spain)

The banter is always some truth hidden. It's good for your heart that you're admitting it gradually.

It's interesting that the thread as usual has become a thread about showing off one's country bombarding us with an overkill of pictures.

Yeah, I already thought about bombarding you with the numerous baroque palaces of Germany, but then I was too lazy.

@ the one who said Spain and Italy were the leading countries of Baroque. I don't quite agree! In many european countries you'll find lots of outstanding baroque architecture, each with it's own special style.

Good thing about Dresden is, that today all major baroque landmarks (like palaces and churches) are rebuilt or reconstructed. Unfortunately most of the smaller baroque residential houses are gone, though reconstruction of those started too and in Neustadt part of Dresden a beautiful baroque quarter has survived around Hauptstraße and Königstrasse.

yes, this is my favorite English great house.

I am surprised that nobody has yet posted pictures of Castle Howard -- or did someone already do this?
