Old and new, co-existing

.

For James' Weekend Reflections , here is the new reflected in the old.

The old is about 900 years old, a building from Crusader times that now houses the Tiberias Tourist Information office.

The new is the Leonardo Plaza Hotel next to the Sea of Galilee.

Which architectural style do you like better? I'll take arches any day.

I like the contrast between the old stones and the modern building... Very nice, indeed...

Julie said...

Yeah, me too. I'll take the arches. Although they do look good with the crimson framing of the glass. Nice way to present your reflection.

most definitely arches.
they can (apparently) stand forever!

My vote definitely goes to the arches too (but never McD's). Yet I can't say I'm displeased by the hotel architecture either.
