The highest Easter palm in the 50-year history of the local festival is being prepared to be pulled up; the current record holder, measuring 33+ metres, is already standing straight in the opposite corner of the square.

Inside the Sielec chamber in the salt mine in Wieliczka.

"The chamber presents a collection of authentic devices used to transport salt in underground galleries. The miners of old used wooden carts, known as Hungarian dogs, chests, and special sledges. Fine salt was put into barrels, and large blocks of salt were fashioned as barrel-shaped rolls and rolled on wooden platforms. In the 16th century, horses began to be used for assisting miners in transporting salt to the surface." (From the official website).

Inside the church of Sant'Onofrio on the slopes of the Janiculum Hill in Rome.

Wikipedia: The church was built in 1439 on the site of an ancient hermitage, as part of a cloistered monastery of the Hieronymites that existed here from the 15th-16th century. It is the official church of the papal order of knighthood Order of the Holy Sepulchre. A side chapel is dedicated specifically to the Order and a former grand master, Nicola Canali is entombed there. The church contains reminders of Torquato Tasso, the author of Gerusalemme Liberata, the epic poem that retells the deeds of the crusaders who fought to regain possession of the Holy Sepulchre itself. After wandering all over Italy, the poet requested and obtained shelter at the monastery of Sant’Onofrio and spent the last years of his life there.

"The ‘dim religious light’ of the church’s interior is well suited to the almost Gothic lines of its main structure, but the richness of the Renaissance glows in the gold of the frescoes adorning the apse. On the authority of Vasari these are attributed to Peruzzi, though the influence of Pinturicchio is evident in some of them, while others maintain that they are by Jacopo Ripanda in collaboration with Lombard painters. They represent God the Father, the Birth of Christ, the Flight into Egypt, the Coronation of the Virgin, and the Virgin and Child enthroned, surrounded by the Apostles, saints, sybils and angelic musicians." (Georgina Masson: The Companion Guide to Rome, Woodbridge 2009).
