Palmyra. Syria. View of the north-western corner internal colonnades of the Temple of Bel. Dedicated to Bel who is thought to be the supreme God of the Palmyrene pantheon, the Temple is an enormous complex and its main construction was performed over several stages from the Hellenistic through to the Roman periods. Palmyra prospered in ancient times as a caravan staging post due to its location on one of the main ancient routes from the Mediterranean Sea to the Euphrates and to markets further east including those on the Silk Route. Palmyra is a UNSECO World Heritage Site

Us-Tourism-San Francisco-Golden Gate Bridge

The Golden Gate Bridge is pictured from the Pacific Ocean on October 24, 2008. The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the Golden Gate, the opening of the San Francisco Bay onto the Pacific Ocean. As part of both U.S. Route 101 and State Route 1, it connects the city of San Francisco on the northern tip of the San Francisco Peninsula to Marin County. The Golden Gate Bridge had the longest suspension bridge span in the world when it was completed in 1937 and has become an internationally recognized symbol of San Francisco and California. Since its completion, the span length has been surpassed by eight other bridges. It still has the second longest suspension bridge main span in the United States, after the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge in New York City. In 2007, it was ranked fifth on the List of America's Favorite Architecture by the American Institute of Architects. AFP PHOTO GABRIEL BOUYS / AFP PHOTO / GABRIEL BOUYS
