I photographed these two pretty painted buildings in Trier, Germany. I think that painted buildings and houses are more prevalent in the southern part of the country.
This building is Schwangau, Germany where the famous Neuschwanstein castle is located.
These two photos were taken inside the Vatican museum. This first one is one of the many painted domes and the second one is from one of the Rafael rooms. This room is huge and all the walls and every part of the ceiling is covered with paintings by the artist Rafael. The photos doesn't do it justice. It is simply stunning.
