10. Arctic Cathedral

It is the most well-known landmark in Tromso. Because of the church’s distinct look, it has often been called “the opera house of Norway”, likening it to the famous Sydney Opera House in Sydney.

There is perhaps no more beautiful way to experience the Arctic Cathedral than by attending a midnight concert. As the candle lights flicker, this elegant church is filled with the sounds of the most beautiful Norwegian folk songs as well as some wonderful classical and sacred selections.

聖家教堂由1882年開始興建,由著名建築師Antoni Gaudi(1852 – 1926)設計,預計2026年將落成,建築期橫跨三世紀。

這種仍在建築的狀態,反而充滿粗獷而躍動的生命力。

5. La Sagrada Familia

This awesome church, located at 16km of the marathon route, was designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí(1852–1926).

Construction of Sagrada Família had commenced in 1882 and at the time of Gaudi’s death at age 73 in 1926, less than a quarter of the project was complete. Sagrada Família’s construction progressed slowly, as it relied on private donations and was interrupted by the Spanish Civil War, only to resume intermittent progress in the 1950s.

Construction passed the midpoint in 2010 with some of the project’s greatest challenges remaining and an anticipated completion date of 2026, the centenary of Gaudí’s death.

Osaka Public City Hall

4. 大阪市中央公会堂

大阪馬拉松的抽簽今日公佈,順便介紹位於十三公里左右,中之島的大阪巿中央公會堂。

會堂建於1918年,日本的大正天皇年代,由住大阪的股票投資者岩本榮之助出資興建。據說岩本先生在美國時,發現美國鉅富都愛捐款興建公共建築,包括知名的演奏廳Carnegie Hall,於是出資一百萬円,在大阪興建這座音樂廳。

這座會堂,算是大阪少數倖存於二戰美軍空襲的建築。

還記得第一屆阪馬,會堂前有樂團演出打氣,這安排應該每一年都有?

4. Osaka City Central Public Hall, Japan

Osaka City Central Public Hall located around 13km of marathon route. It is an elegant, Neo-Renaissance architecture with red brick wall and dome-shaped bronze roof, built in 1918.

The public hall was made with a large grant from Mr. Einosuke Iwamoto who was a broker in Kitahama, Osaka. His donation was 1 million yen equivalent to billions yen in current monetary value.

Einosuke had an opportunity to visit the United States and there he was impressed by the fact that American businessmen pay their own money to contribute to make great public halls like Carnegie Hall.

Then he decided to construct one in Osaka which should be as beautiful as any hall in the world.

Luckily, the building survived World War Two.
