O Palácio de São Bento é um palácio de estilo neoclássico situado em Lisboa, sendo a sede do Parlamento de Portugal (Assembléia da República) desde 1834. Foi construído em finais do século XVI como mosteiro beneditino (Mosteiro de S. Bento da Saúde). Com a extinção das ordens religiosas em Portugal passou a ser propriedade do Estado.
Ao longo dos séculos XIX e XX o Palácio foi sofrendo uma série de grandes obras de remodelação, interiores e exteriores, que o tornaram quase completamente distinto do antigo Mosteiro. O interior é igualmente grandioso, repleto de alas e de obras de arte de diferentes épocas da história de Portugal. #palaciodesaobento#assembleiadarepública#lisboa#portugal#tourism#portugallovers#portugaltourism#lisbon#love#historic#historiccity #🇵🇹
🤓 Polito-Geographical-Post: Nowadays it’s called Occitanie. Languedoc: Former province of France. Borrowed from French Languedoc, from langue d'oc (“the language of oc”), from Dante Alighieri’s De vulgari eloquentia, where he wrote in Latin: “nam alii oc, alii si, alii vero dicunt oil” (‘some say òc, others say sì, others say oïl’). Based on the Occitan [Term?] word òc (“yes”), in contrast to Old French oïl (now French oui). (Thank you, wikipedia!) #languedoc#occitanie#domainelanguedoc#holidayregion#languedoctourisme 😃
"The most important man in my life is and always will be Alain Delon. He is always there when I need a shoulder to cry on… even today Alain is the only man I can count on. He would always help me. Only Alain shaped me as a woman. Even though he hurt me a lot when he left me I also matured because of it."

A total of 36 inmates tried to beat the “escape-proof” Alcatraz. Of those, 23 were captured, 6 were shot to death and 2 drowned. 5 went missing and nobody knows if they drowned or escaped, including Frank Morris and brothers John and Clarence Anglin, whose 1962 attempted breakout inspired the 1979 film “Escape from Alcatraz.” A 2013 letter to the FBI, if real, suggests the Anglin brothers and Frank Morris survived. Thr letter was written by a man claiming to be one of the escapees, providing a photo of him after the escape and stated he was dying of cancer.
The trio chipped away at the rotting concrete cell walls (seen below the sink in this photo) with sharpened spoons and fashioned decoy heads complete with used locks of hair from the barbershop that they placed in their beds to fool the guards. They even created a raft made from 50 raincoats. Their possessions were found floating in San Francisco Bay, but no bodies were ever recovered, leading some to speculate that they may have actually engineered a successful escape.
