Historic Monument

Romania 2007 (16) 057

This is the wall of the Azilul Batrinului which was opposite the hotel where I was staying. The signs are in close-up below:

The top sign reads:

Old Peoples’ Home
constructed in the 13th century.
In this building the first philanthropic
institution worked, beginning in the
year 1292 until the present day.

The bottom sign was one which appeared on a lot of buildings in the city centre during the two months (August and September) that I was away in Moldova. It’s pretty obvious what it’s saying, that this is a historic monument. Personally I think they went really over the top and it was quite unnecessary.
