Jakob Frenzel.

I was born in 1987 in West-Berlin. Since then I have visited many places in Europe and went on four trips through the USA, to New Zealand and Thailand.
2005 I discovered the magnificance of World heritage sites and since then try not to miss any on our journeys. We try to plan trips according to the locactions of WHS site, that way we visited 18 sites in England 2018! And 28 sites on a trp to the Normandy and back.

The German Televison produces short documentaries on each site, called Schätze der Welt, which I record and love to watch with the whole family. I recommend it to every WHS enthusiast.

The Olive Grove Landscapes of Andalusia (T)

Jakob Frenzel Germany - 14-Feb-20

The Olive Grove Landscapes of Andalusia (T)

March 2017 besides the many naval orange trees, we saw a tremendous amount of olive groves on our trip. Which of these will be part of a future whs,  i dont know. But looking at the map: we had a small stopover in Archidona, we spent the night on a campground in Cazorla between olivetrees, of course we visited Baeza, we passed Matorla and had breakfast in Baena. So at least we saw some of the proposed towns, which had nice settings within the olive groves. The groves we  did not really visit, at least no guided Tour through olive Farms. However, olives are important for the mediterranen  landscape, why not on the whs list. We are excited to see the emerging nomination.

Seville

Jakob Frenzel Germany - 17-Feb-20

March 2017 - our last two nights of the Andalusia trip we spent in Sevilla, in 1992 I was visiting the Expo, whichs remains look quite awkward nowadays. But the other parts of the City are just beautiful. It's true that it is crowded with tourist, and the flair is not nearly as cozy as in Cordoba, but there are some wonderful part in the city. the tiled house in the city centre, the cathedral and Alcazar but also the Plaza de Espana in the marie Luise park. There are many nice bars that offer Sherrys and Tapas and many small shops. There is an amazing wooden structure in the city, that should be on everyones itinerary, and if your are lucky, we were, there are processions through the city. Due to the entrance fees, but also the long queue we decide not to go into the Alcazar

Jaén Cathedral (extension of the Renaissance Monumental Ensembles of Úbeda and Baeza) (T)

Jakob Frenzel Germany - 17-Feb-20

March 2017 - Arriving in Jaen, we had the impression of being in a South American City in the Andes. The city has some nice parts, but especially the Cathedral is just gorgeous. We drove to a viewpoint at the castle where you had a overwhelming glance at the city. It would definietly be worth inscription as an exension of Ubeda and Baeza and also worth a stopover when going to Cordoba.

Cordoba

Cordoba

March 2017- 25 years before my parents took me to a conference in Cordoba, and I have the best memories of it. Now I wanted to do a revisit. We stayed in a small Hotel and strolled around the jewish city, juderia, for a whole day. It is just beautiful and its worth to sneek into every second courtyard to be overwhelmed by their beauty. We visited the alcazar, next to old town. And the next morning we finally got tickets to get into to Mezquita. One of europes highlight which is overwhelming. We spent  nearly 1 hour  in the building a shot numerous pictures from any perspective.

Medina Azahara

Medina Azahara

March 2017 - having visited the mezquita of Cordoba that morning it is spmewgat depressing to see ruins of a city, that was probably just that beautiful. We thought of Mdina Azahara as an Extension of the WHS, but luckily we visited anyway.

It is overwhelming, what has been built here for visitors. A giant Museum with a High amount of artefacts is welcoming you. EU visitors are paying less, lucky us:) Bus Shuttles are bringing you to the ruins.

You can walk in and between the ruins which brings you closer to the past than just looking at them. And you are free to take your time. The views were very nice and some of the ruins are still well preserved so you can imagine well how it must have been 1100 years ago. A nice visit, very close to.Cordoba
