Royal Tombs of the Joseon Dynasty in Seoul, Korea

Royal Tombs of the Joseon Dynasty in Seoul, Korea

Share/Bookmark

The Royal Tombs of the Joseon Dynasty form a collection of 40 tombs scattered over 18 locations. Built over five centuries, from 1408 to 1966, the tombs honoured the memory of ancestors, showed respect for their achievements, asserted royal authority, protected ancestral spirits from evil and provided protection from vandalism. The roads to the royal tombs lead travelers to an auspicious place. The sites of the royal tombs were carefully selected by Feng Shui experts, and the landscape, structures, and architecture surrounding the tombs combined to produce the highest art form of the time. The premises of the royal tombs are surrounded by mountains, bodies of water, and grass lawns and covered by old pine trees. Not only have they been preserved perfectly for 600 years, but the memorial rites from then are still practiced today. The royal tombs of the Joseon dynasty are the ultimate icons of Joseon history and culture that have continued to today.

Alcazar Royal Palace of Seville, Spain

Alcazar Royal Palace of Seville, Spain

Share/Bookmark

The Alcázar of Seville is one of the most representative monumental compounds in the city. It is the Royal Palace of Seville, a magnificent complex of patios and halls in different architectural styles, from Mudéjar to Gothic. The heart of the complex is the Palace of King Pedro I, who constructed his royal residence in 1364 at the site of a Moorish palace. Nowadays, the Alcazar is a part-time residence for the present Spanish royal family, including King Juan Carlos. Even though only a few rooms are reserved for their usage, unfortunately, when they’re in, the complex becomes closed to tourists. It was granted World Heritage Site status in 1988.
