As a new VR photographer it is my aim to document as much of the town where i live and work, this is not for monetary gain but merely to bring the beauty of Sitges and Olivella to more people.
The gardens of Terramar, Sitges designed by Miquel Utrillo date from 1919 and were formed as part of the redesign of the Terramar area of Sitges.
They were designed to be an area of tranquility , a space to relax and to be enjoyed by all.
The gardens have a huge range of mediterranean vegetation and trees and today host areas for kids, football and you can even book a wedding to be held in the gardens. A visit on a sunday morning demonstrates this.
There are lots of areas to sit and relax.
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. Text by Steve Smith.
