"It was by pure luck, that I caught a glimpse of what appeared to be an abandoned castle." -Unknown
The Belvédère du Rayon Vert was a hotel in Cerbère,France, designed in the art deco style by thePerpignan architect, Léon Baille, and built between 1928 and 1932. It has the overall appearance of a ship. It has its own cinema, and a tennis court on the roof. In 1987, the building was protected under the list of historic monuments (inscription). Part of the building has been brought back into use as apartments, with some original features. The building is open to visitors most afternoons.
abandoned home ... even if it was lived in I would stare at it ... on another note: why do things have to be colourful these days? faded colours, blending in with nature seems so much more realisticly "old" to me. But then again, I think people used colour in those days, as well. It's just all faded now and we have no knowledge of the past. Only black and white pictures ...
