Built to last: the Francis Fassett House in Portland. This High Victorian Gothic home is a dominant presence in the West End, but the fact that renowned Portland architect Fassett designed the building as a duplex for both him and his son makes it kind of adorable too 👨👦

Jasna Góra Monastery ( Częstochowa - Poland ) is a famous Polish shrine to the Virgin Mary and one of the country's places of pilgrimage. The image of the Black Madonna of Częstochowa, also known as Our Lady of Częstochowa, to which miraculous powers are attributed, is one of Jasna Góra's most precious treasures.Among the monastery's other treasures and artifacts of interest is the medal from the 1983 Nobel Peace Prize received by Lech Wałęsa, the former Polish president and trade-union organizer.The site is one of Poland's official national Historic Monuments (Pomnik historii), as of 16 October 1994 and is tracked by the National Heritage Board of Poland.Jasna Góra Monastery was founded in 1382 by Pauline monks who came from Hungary at the invitation of Władysław, Duke of Opole. The monastery has been a pilgrimage destination for hundreds of years, and it contains an important icon of the Virgin Mary. The icon, depicting the Mother of God with the Christ Child, is known as the Black Madonna of Częstochowa or Our Lady of Częstochowa, which is widely venerated and credited with many miracles.Among these, it is credited with miraculously saving the Jasna Góra monastery during the Siege of Jasna Górathat took place at the time of The Deluge, a 17th-century Swedish invasion. The event stimulated the Polish resistance. The Poles could not immediately change the course of the war, but, after an alliance with the Crimean Khanate, they repulsed the Swedes. Shortly thereafter, in the cathedral of Lviv, on April 1, 1656, Jan Kazimierz, the King of Poland, solemnly pronounced his vow to consecrate the country to the protection of the Mother of God and proclaimed Her the Patron and Queen of the lands in his kingdom.Every year since the Middle Ages, thousands of Poles go in pilgrim groups to visit Jasna Góra. #holychurches
From a judge to a shipping magnate to a historic preservation society, this Northeastern country house has traded hands numerous times during its 210-year life span. Fortunately for visitors to the modern-day Castle Tucker, thoughtful maintenance has kept the brick exterior, piazza windows, and balustrades of the Regency-inspired residence as striking today as they were on the day the home was completed in 1807.⠀
