Le nom de la ville proviendrait du mot « monastère » même si il reste un sujet de débat : la théorie de Hassan Hosni Abdelwaheb indique que le nom a une origine arabe emprunté de la description byzantine qui était répandue dans l'Orient pour décrire les forts bâtis sur le littoral. Il est donc le produit du mot grec monastrion ayant la signification de monastère. Pour Sliman Mustapha Zbis, les habitants du pays avaient l'habitude, avant la conquête musulmane, de désigner par ce nom « la société chrétienne désirée par les moines ». Ils ont donc nommé les forts musulmans par le même terme que les abbayes chrétiennes.

Bonjour Urs,
marché vidé de gens avant?
Chance de ne pas prendre trop de gens là-bas. Ainsi nous pouvons voir cette merveille, sans aucun problème. Nice POV et de choix.
Bon Dimanche,
Adrian

That shot is fantastic, Urs, the light, the wide view - and that disign on the ground is amazing.

Wow, another great contribution from you, Urs!

The sky, the textures on the facade of this great architectural building and the ornamental tiles on the floor, all make this work a exceptional symmetry. Perfect sky which brings great mood into the shot. Very well seen!

Bonjour Urs

Beau graphisme du sol dans un respect total des alignements. Une place vide qui nous permet d'admirer l'architecture dans sa globalité.
Belle perspective

Hello Urs

Jimmy

Ciao Urs, splendid persèective on a beautiful square, fantastic sky, splendid light and colors, very well done, happy Valentine Day my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Urs,
Smart use of the available elements to compose your image. From your POV, great perspective and details well captured with the interesting sky to complete the scene. The post-processing created a halo around the dome of the monastery. In a way, it adds some mystery to the shot.
Well done,
Robert

Hello Urs,

Excellent pattern caught. Great composition.

Bonjour Urs,
Magistral! Assez rare qu'on puisse trouver un sujet avec deux points de fuite! L'angle choisi ici est impeccable. Comme la composition parfaitement équilibrée. Un ciel tourmenté rasant une place si calme et déserte augmente l'intérêt de la scène. Superbe réalisation! Annie

Nice shot Urs, taking advantage of the floor pattern to create a nice composition.
Good placement of the subject and nice proportion of sky.
Great shot

Hi Urs,

The repeating ground pattern has an almost dizzying effect. The monastery is well placed in the frame, and the ominous clouds seem to be gathering above it. There is a small amount of haloing above the dome, but it isn't too bad. A very interesting composition, TFS.

Best regards,
Werner

Hi Urs.

Ciao Urs


Beautiful and delicious visual repetition of signals,
the floor, has a fine effect in the square.
The architecture of the center is wonderful in your
beautiful arches
Sharpness and clarity are nice.
Composition and presentation are wonderful.
Very well done,

Have a nice day,

Sergio

Bonjour Urs,

What a fine shot!
I like the low pov which takes best advantage of the beautiful, tiled floor and leads nicely to the off-centre focal building.
The sky is interesting and adds drama to the scene.

Have a good day,
Bev :-)
