Visited the Venetian Pool
- said to be the most beautiful swimming pool
in the world
- it was created in the 1920s
out of an old coral rock quarry
.
It certainly is a beautiful pool!
.
Waterfalls
- nowadays there are so many adventures parks
so it doesn't impress that much
even though it is old & has
a certain glamour
.
Pink stucco towers & loggias,
candy-cane Venetian poles,
a cobblestone bridge,
caves surround
the clear, spring-fed waters
.
Wedding pictures by the pool
- why not!
- it is a gorgeous place
.
