Construction of the Palace of Versailles began in 1661

some 55 years after Willem Janszoon first sighted

Australia and just over 109 years before

Captain Cook landed at Botany Bay.

 

Older still is the

Schönbrunn Palace

construction of which

commenced in 1642

The oldest of this post is

The Colosseum.

Construction of The Colosseum

began in 70AD and was completed in 80 AD

Which in 2021 makes

The Colosseum

1950 years old

since completion

We were told, these pavers,

are part of the original building. 

Imagine, nearly 2,000 years since completion,

the sheer number of feet to have walked over them

and who, in history may have walked here.

The  Colosseum is definitely my oldest building

in my old, older, oldest post this week.
