"Diana temple" in evora is pretty much invisible as we saw last week, the same goes for the impressive ( so they say) front facade of the cloister in Lisboa.

Mireuksaji Seoktap in Iksan will be fully restored and open to the public March 12th, 2019.

This is a 20 year restoration. This Baekje treasure will be analyzed greatly in the coming months. As the oldest (639 C.E.) and largest pagoda (14.5m) in Korea, it is undoubtably a national treasure, but will the restoration be celebrated for its authenticity or criticized for looking "newish"? From my understanding and what I witnessed, the stones were meticulously catalogued in order to use as much original materials in their correct location upon re-assembly.

According to experts involved in the restoration work, "There are 3,000 stones that were dismantled and removed. 81% of these were re-used. The ratio of the old stone to the new stonework is 65% and 35%, respectively, and it has been reused as much as possible."
