As a new VR photographer it is my aim to document as much of the town where i live, this is not for monetary gain but merely to bring the beauty of Sitges to more people.

The Palau Marycel is a beautiful example of this and is based in the old part of town just down from the town hall and houses during the summer evenings beautiful open air concerts due to the natural audortorium the courtyard and surrounding buildings create. During the day in summer many high quality buskers are to be found here.

The Palau Maricel, or Maricel Palace, was built in 1910 by North American millionaire Charles Deering to house his art collections. Today it is one of the most emblematic venues in Sitges for holding meetings, receptions, conferences, weddings and banquets in an incomparable setting.

The Palau Maricel’s main floor offers two exquisitely beautiful halls: the Gold Room and the Blue Room, each with its own unique decoration.

Equipped for outdoor receptions and other events, the Palau’s Terraces and the Cloister, located at the top of the building, are a privileged lookout point over the Mediterranean.

Das Panorama wurde in Spain, Europe aufgenommen

Dies ist ein Überblick von Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.

The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.

Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".

Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.

Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights.

In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states.
