Reino Unido de Gran Bretaña - Escocia - Glasgow - Royal Infirmary


The Glasgow Royal Infirmary (GRI) is a large teaching hospital, operated by NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde. With a capacity of around 1000 beds, the hospital campus covers an area of around 8 hectares (20 acres), situated on the north-eastern edge of the city centre of Glasgow, Scotland.

Designed by Robert and James Adam, the original Royal Infirmary building was opened in December 1794. The infirmary was built beside Glasgow Cathedral on land that held the ruins of the Bishop's Castle, which dated from at least the 13th century but had been allowed to fall into disrepair. A Royal Charter was obtained in 1791, that granted the Crown-owned land to the hospital. The original Adams building had five floors (one underground) holding eight wards (giving the hospital just over a hundred beds) and a circular operating room on the fourth floor with a glazed dome ceiling. After a number of additional buildings were added, the first in 1816, a specialist fever block in 1829 and a surgical block in 1861. Following the amalgamation of the old St. Mungo's College of Medicine into the University of Glasgow Medical School in 1947, the old College buildings on Castle Street officially became part of the hospital campus, until their replacement by the New Building in the early 1980s.

The Queen Elizabeth Building, completed in 1981, is in the foreground. The newer Princess Royal Maternity Block, opened in 2001, is just behind and to the right. The University Teaching Block is on the left hand side, adjoining the 1981 building.

The original Adams building was replaced in 1914 with a new building designed by James Miller and opened by King George V. In 1924, the surgical block in which Joseph Lister had worked was also torn down to be replaced. In 1948 the hospital became part of NHS Scotland.

Reino Unido de Gran Bretaña - Escocia - Stirling - Castillo


ENGLISH

Edinburgh Castle is a historic fortress which dominates the skyline of the city of Edinburgh, Scotland, from its position on the Castle Rock. Archaeologists have established human occupation of the rock since at least the Iron Age (2nd century AD), although the nature of the early settlement is unclear. There has been a royal castle on the rock since at least the reign of David I in the 12th century, and the site continued to be a royal residence until the Union of the Crowns in 1603. From the 15th century the castle's residential role declined, and by the 17th century it was principally used as military barracks with a large garrison. Its importance as a part of Scotland's national heritage was recognised increasingly from the early 19th century onwards, and various restoration programmes have been carried out over the past century and a half. As one of the most important strongholds in the Kingdom of Scotland, Edinburgh Castle was involved in many historical conflicts from the Wars of Scottish Independence in the 14th century to the Jacobite Rising of 1745. Research undertaken in 2014 identified 26 sieges in its 1100-year-old history, giving it a claim to having been "the most besieged place in Great Britain and one of the most attacked in the world".

Few of the present buildings pre-date the Lang Siege of the 16th century, when the medieval defences were largely destroyed by artillery bombardment. The most notable exceptions are St Margaret's Chapel from the early 12th century, which is regarded as the oldest building in Edinburgh, the Royal Palace and the early-16th-century Great Hall, although the interiors have been much altered from the mid-Victorian period onwards. The castle also houses the Scottish regalia, known as the Honours of Scotland and is the site of the Scottish National War Memorial and the National War Museum of Scotland. The British Army is still responsible for some parts of the castle, although its presence is now largely ceremonial and administrative. Some of the castle buildings house regimental museums which contribute to its presentation as a tourist attraction.

The castle, in the care of Historic Scotland, is Scotland's most-visited paid tourist attraction, and indeed, it is Edinburgh's most frequently visited visitor attraction.

ESPAÑOL

El castillo de Edimburgo es una antigua fortaleza erigida sobre una roca de origen volcánico ubicada en el centro de la ciudad de Edimburgo. Ha sido utilizado con fines de tipo militar desde el siglo XII, siendo destinado a usos civiles solo hasta épocas muy recientes. Se encuentra emplazado en la cima de la calle Alta o High Street, también conocida como Milla real o Royal Mile. Se trata de la atracción turística más visitada de Escocia.

Tres de sus lados se encuentran protegidos por abruptos acantilados, y el acceso al castillo queda limitado a una calle de pronunciada pendiente en el lado este del castillo. Antaño hubo un lago en su lado norte, lago llamado Nor'Loch, que fue desecado en época georgiana con la construcción de la ciudad nueva, para ser utilizado como albañal al aire libre y más tarde como parque, siendo a partir de ese momento cuando la ciudadela perdió la mayor parte de su papel defensivo.

En el interior se presentan varias exposiciones y museos, entre los cuales destacan:

- Los Honores de Escocia, donde se encuentran las joyas de la Corona escocesa y los objetos del tesoro real escocés.
- La Piedra de Scone, también conocida como "Piedra del Destino", sobre la que se coronaban los reyes escoceses.
- El Memorial Nacional de la Guerra de Escocia.
- Mons Meg, un enorme cañón de sitio del siglo XV.
- El cañón de las trece horas, que dispara cada día a dicha hora.
- La capilla de Santa Margarita, la zona más antigua de la fortaleza, y posiblemente de la ciudad.

Reino Unido de Gran Bretaña - Escocia - Glasgow - Science Centre

ENGLISH

Glasgow Science Centre is a visitor attraction located in the Clyde Waterfront Regeneration area on the south bank of the River Clyde in Glasgow, Scotland. Queen Elizabeth II opened Glasgow Science Centre on 5 June 2001. It is one of Britain's most popular places to visit. It is a purpose-built science centre composed of three principal buildings which are the Science Mall, Glasgow Tower and an IMAX cinema. The Scottish tourist board, VisitScotland, awarded Glasgow Science Centre a five star rating in the visitor attraction category. As well as its main location, Glasgow Science Centre also manages the visitor centre at Whitelee Wind Farm, which opened to the public in 2009.

*******************************************************************************

ESPAÑOL

Es una atracción para visitantes ubicada en el banco sur del Río Clyde en Glasgow, Escocia. Es un centro de ciencias compuesto de tres edificios principales los cuales son el Mall de las Ciencia, Cine IMAX, y la Torre Glasgow.

El Mall de las Ciencias es una estructura con forma de media luna revestida de titanio que aloja tres pisos de exhibiciones interactivas de ciencia y aprendizaje, un Teatro de Ciencias y el Planetario ScottishPower, el cual tiene una proyecto óptico-mecánico marca Zeiss, que proyecta imágenes del cielo nocturno dentro de un domo de 15 metros de diámetro.

El Cine IMAX fue el primer IMAX en ser construido en Escocia. El auditorio tiene 350 asientos en frente de una pantalla rectangular que mide 18.3 metros por 24.4 metros, lo que le da un área total de 446.52 m², y tiene la capacidad de mostrar filmes 3D.

La Torre Glasgow tiene 127 metros de altura, y es actualmente la torre más alta en Escocia y es la segunda estructura parada libre después de la chimenea de la estación de energía Inverkip. También tiene el record Guinnes por ser la mas alta estructura en el mundo capaz de rotar 360º grados desde su base hasta la cima. Tiene la forma de un perfil ala de avión, como si un ala estuviera colocada en el suelo verticalmente, con motores computarizados para rotarla y reducir la resistencia del viento. La torre conocida previamente como Torre Millenium, fue el diseño ganador en una competencia internacional para diseñar una torre para el centro de Glasgow. Cuando fue terminada en el 2001, se convirtió en la más alta torre en Escocia. A pesar de que la misma tiene una cubierta de observación a 105 metros de altura, esta no tiene pisos continuos desde el suelo por lo que no es considerada como un edificio por el Consejo de Edificios Altos y Habitats Urbanos.
