Beautiful views, the images that capture a city’s spirit, convey the emotion of nature or fill us with memories combining historic sites and our own happiness.
What we refer to as city “postcards” are an original part of the travel experience. The Venetian vedute began as a humble genre, characteristic of the painters that sold travellers the most significant vignettes of La Serenissima: the canals, the markets in the piazzas or St. Mark’s Basilica were masterfully depicted; the architectural details along with the everyday scenes portrayed in these cityscapes made the vedute a highly valued souvenir.
The masters of painting soon adopted this genre that entered the history of art as a tool for discovering customs, landscapes and relief.
The views in Compostela are one of the great memories that you will take away with you. A city of human proportions and divine spirit that will show you some of life’s scenery. Here are our five favourite ones. Of course, an image to be remembered can appear suddenly; you look out of your apartment window and there it is.
