Eglise de Sr.Croix,Bordeus (Bordču), Aquitŕnia, Gironda, França
Bordeus (Bordeu en occita; Bordeaux en frances), es una ciutat portuaria del Sud-oest de Franca, capital de la regio d'Aquitania i del departament de Gironda. Va ser fundada en el segle III aC sota el nom de Burdigala pels Bituriges Vivisques, un poble gal de la regio de Bourges, dels que fou la capital. El primer emplacament va estar situat en la desembocadura del Deveze, un afluent del Garona. El naixement de la ciutat no esta associat a les qualitats del lloc, ja que en la desembocadura estava sobre un pla amb aiguamolls pestilents. Sota els romans fou un centre comercial. Ausoni (segle IV) era nascut a la ciutat i va escriure sobre ella un poema titulat Ordo Nobilium Urbium. Esmenta una font anomenada Divona que preveia d'aigua a la ciutat. Un aqueducte subterrani tambe li portava aigua. Tetric, governador d'Aquitania, fou proclamat emperador a la ciutat. Fou la capital de la provincia Aquitania Secunda (Metropolis Civitas Burdegalensium). Fou ocupada pels visigots i inclosa al regne visigot de Tolosa i fou despres possessio dels francs amb els que va sorgir el ducat d'Aquitania. Es conserva d'aquesta epoca l'amfiteatre (conegut com les Arenes o Palais Gallien). Un temple que es conservava va ser demolit durant el regnat de Lluis XVI de Franca.Va ser saquejada per les tropes d'Abdul Rahman Al Ghafiqi en 732, despres d'haver derrotat al duc Eudes. Fou un comtat del ducat d'Aquitania. Vegeu Comtat de Bordeus. Del segle XII al XV va ser feu d'un rei angles. El segle XVIII va ser la seva epoca daurada, a causa del comerc amb les Indies orientals. Els hotels dels molls procedeixen d'aquest periode. Durant la Primera Guerra Mundial el govern frances es va retirar a aquesta ciutat. La regio de Bordeus es llar dels mes prestigiosos productors de vi del mon. Existeixen al voltant de 14.000 productors de vi, 117.514 hectarees de vinyers, 400 comerciants i un volum de negoci de 14.500 milions d'euros----- BORDEAUX (in Gascon: Bordeu) is a port city in the south-west of France, with 925,253 inhabitants in the metropolitan area at the 1999 census. It is the capital of the Aquitaine region, as well as the prefecture of the Gironde department. Its inhabitants are called Bordelais. Bordeaux is known to be Europe's main military space and aeronautics research and construction complex. Bordeaux wine draws its name from the city around which it has been produced since the 8th century. The city is considered the world's wine capital, hosting Vinexpo, the wine industry's biggest event worldwide. With almost 100,000 students, the city's university is renowned for its research units in crop science, new materials and nanotechnology. Between 30,000 and 90,000 years ago the area of Bordeaux was inhabited by the Homo neanderthalensis, whose remains have been found at a famous cave known as Pair-non-Pair, near Bourg sur Gironde, just north of Bordeaux.In historical times, around 300 BC it was the settlement of a Celtic tribe, the Bituriges Vivisci, who named the town Burdigala, probably of Aquitainian origin. The name Bourde is still the name of a river south of the city. The city fell under Roman rule around 60 BC, its importance lying in the commerce of Tin and Lead towards Rome. Later it became capital of Roman Aquitaine, flourishing especially during the Severan dynasty (3rd century). In 276 it was sacked by the Vandals. Further ravage was brought by the same Vandals in 409, the Visigoths in 414 and the Franks in 498, beginning a period of obscurity for the city.In the late sixth century, the city reemerged as the seat of a county and an archdiocese within the Merovingian kingdom of the Franks. The city fell into obscurity as royal power waned in southern Gaul in the late seventh century. The city was plundered by the troops of Abd er Rahman in 732, after he had defeated Duke Eudes and before he was killed during the Battle of Tours on October 10. Under the Carolingians were appointed a series of Counts of Bordeaux who served to defend the mouth of the Garonne from the Vikings. Eventually, the city was inherited by the Dukes of Gascony in the late tenth century.From the 12th to the 15th century, Bordeaux regained importance as part of the English realm, following the marriage of Duchess Eleanor of Aquitaine with the French-speaking Count Henri Plantagenet, born in Le Mans, who became, within months of their wedding, King Henry II of England. The city flourished, primarily due to wine trade, and the cathedral of St. Andre was built. It was also the capital of an independent state under Edward, the Black Prince (1362-1372), but in the end, after the Battle of Castillon (1453) it returned to France. The Chateaux Trompette (Trumpet Castle) and the Fort du Ha, built by Charles VII of France, were the symbols of the new domination, which however deprived the city of its richness by halting the wine commerce with England. In 1462 Bordeaux obtained a parliament, but regained importance only in the 16
Former Devonshire Royal Hospital Buxton Derbyshire
Formerly the Devonshire Royal Hospital, commonly known as the Devonshire Dome, is a Grade II* listed 18th-century former stable block. It was added to in 1881 by architect Robert Rippon Duke,with what was then the world's largest unsupported dome with a diameter of 44.2 metres (145 ft); beating the Pantheon 43 metres (141 ft) and St Peter's Basilica 42 metres (138 ft) in Rome.
It is still the largest dome in the UK.
Built between 1780–1789, it was designed by John Carr of York for William Cavendish, 5th Duke of Devonshire. An octagonal building, it housed up to 110 horses and the servants of the guests of the Crescent Hotel and was built as part of the plan to promote Buxton as a spa town.
In 1859, the Buxton Bath Charity had persuaded the Duke of Devonshire to allow part of the building to be converted to a charity hospital for the use of the ‘sick poor’ and two thirds of the building was converted into a hospital.
In 1881, the Buxton Bath Charity trustees , persuaded William Cavendish, 7th Duke of Devonshire to give them the use of the whole building. Local architect Robert Rippon Duke was commissioned to design a 300-bed hospital for charity medical provision. The building became known as the Devonshire Royal Hospital in 1934.
In 2001, the University of Derby acquired the Devonshire Royal Hospital. The University received ?4.7m Heritage Lottery Fund backing for the restoration and redevelopment project.
Refurbished and reopened in 2003. It is used as a wedding venue, and exhibition space. It houses cafes, shops, restaurants and study spaces. The original spa of the hydropathic hospital has been reopened as a commercial spa centre.
