Haight-Ashbury is a district of San Francisco, California, named for the intersection of Haight and Ashbury streets. It is also called The Haight and The Upper Haight. The neighborhood is known for its history of hippie subculture.
The Haight-Ashbury district is noted for its role as a center of the 1960s hippie movement. The earlier bohemians of the beat movement had congregated around San Francisco’s North Beach neighborhood from the late 1950s. Many who could not find accommodation there turned to the quaint, relatively cheap and underpopulated Haight-Ashbury. The Summer of Love (1967), the 1960s era as a whole, and much of modern American counterculture have been synonymous with San Francisco and the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood ever since.
Núñez de Arce Street is in Madrid, Spain, between Cross Street and Plaza de Santa Ana. It receives this name from the year 1904 in honor of poet and playwright Gaspar Núñez de Arce born in 1834 and died a year before the acquisition of the name of the street.
Originally this street was called Street of the “Gorguera” (Ruff) and there are several thesis that would give explanation to the name. One of them would point to the fact that on this street resided Maria Molas, a known ruff by his spells wich was condemned for it. Well, it seems, of this despair name could derive the name of Gorguera.On the other hand another theory says that the gorguera was a neck decoration in the 17th century and that there was a factory of these on this street.
Calahorra, La Rioja, Spain.
Calahorra’s Cathedral is the most ancient historical sight in the diocese of Calahorra and La Calzada-Logroño. Its origin lays in the martyrdom of the Roman legionnaires Emeterius and Celedonius. In the 4th century, the peregrination to the sacred place enabled the building of a Baptistery at the site of the martyrdom.
When the city fell in the hands of the Arabs the temple was destroyed and was restored as Romanesque temple when the city was re-conquered for Christianity in 1045 by the King of Navarre, Mr. García of Najera.
The construction of the current building of the Cаthedral was started in 1484, and lasted for more than two centuries.
