From Orient to Occident (ex Oriente lux):

Oval Maidan (Bombay, India)



Decadent Victorian architecture, a long cluster of Art déco buildings, torpid tropical vegetation, the caw of crows, casual cricket. All of them make up for the feeling of a five o'clock masala chai with colonial flavour.

Piazza San Pietro (Vatican City, Holy See)



Designed by Bernini, surrounded by Roman pine trees along the Tiber and peaceful gardens where cats snuggle up to cassocks. Architecture, sculpture and harmony of proportions at their best, where Humanism meets Sanctity.

Praza do Obradoiro (Santiago de Compostela, Spain)



The terminus of the Way of Saint James, in the medieval town of Santiago de Compostela. It has been an overwhelming sight for pilgrims for almost one thousand years, always best enjoyed beside the blue flames of a queimada.

And honorary mentions to: Registan (Samarkand, Uzbekistan), Bab al-Yaman (Sana'a, Yemen), Piazza del Duomo (Amalfi, Italy).
