Ancient structures

About five thousand years ago among the boundless Sands of the African deserts to the Egyptian IV dynasty Pharaoh khafra (the Greeks called him Chephren) built for himself the pyramid-tomb. And to watch her was placed the stone lion with a human head – the Great Sphinx.

His eyes looking into eternity, and smile dozens of centuries plagued mankind with its mystery.

There is however a version that was Pierre from France or Parla Pietro Parlare from Italy. However, all agree that the last name is derived from the Latin word parlerius, meaning “Builder” or “master”, so Parlerei is the builders name Builders. Anyone who had in this family, too, is not entirely clear.

To build them for 75 years managed the nave and the apse with the altar in the Eastern part of the building and a Large tower on the South side. The services were held in the unfinished part of the temple, with the fourth side fenced Continue reading
