Everything is about slate in this museum which is right next to Llanberis at the shores of Llyn Padarn. From there whole mountain sides have been "converted" to slate in all shapes and sizes. But because you were in North Wales they had to do everything "in house". So there was a huge water wheel which provided power via the shaft at the rear throughout all those toolsheds where they had a foundry for the smaller parts and tools (seen here), a proper big foundry for waggon wheels and all kind of slate cutting and finishing equipment.

The parallel roads are found just off the A86 at Roybridge .By taking the minor road for Glen Roy / Bohuntine you will eventually reach a car park where you can view the parallel roads .The strange lines in the mountain side were caused by a huge lake that used to fill the glen approx 10,000 years ago . The water was held there by a glacier and the lines are the levels of the shoreline at various times in its existence .The levels range from 260 , 325 and 350m

The Chapel Bridge (German: Kapellbrücke) is a covered wooden footbridge spanning diagonally across the Reuss River in the city of Lucerne in central Switzerland. Named after the nearby St. Peter's Chapel,[1] the bridge is unique since it contains a number of interior paintings dating back to the 17th century, although many of them were destroyed along with most of the centuries old bridge in a 1993 fire. Subsequently restored, the Kapellbrücke is the oldest wooden covered bridge in Europe,[2] as well as the world's oldest surviving truss bridge.[3] It serves as the city's symbol and as one of Switzerland's main tourist attractions http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kapellbr%C3%BCcke#cite_note-3

In posizione panoramica. Fondato nel 1535, prima sede svizzera dei frati cappuccini, fu ampliato nel 1659-88 e alzato di un piano nel 1760-67 da Giuseppe Caresana.Edificio formato da quattro corpi disposti intorno a un piccolo chiostro senza porticato.Restauro 1966-67, durante il quale l'antica legnaia fu trasformata in una cappella su progetto di Tita Carloni e Mario Botta. A quest'ultimo si deve anche la trasformazione di alcuni locali al primo piano nell'ala S-E del chiostro in sala di riunioni 1973-74.Ulteriori lavori di ricostruzione e di miglioria dopo il rovinoso incendio del 1987. Nel 1996 è stato allestito da Raffaele Cavadini un museo liturgico che accoglie oggetti legati alla sfera religiosa e alle occupazioni quotidiane dei cappuccini.Accanto al portale d'entrata: affresco raffigurante S. Francesco e un angelo attr. ai fratelli Giuseppe Antonio Maria e Giovanni Antonio Torricelli, XVIII sec. Nel museo si conserva una notevole collezione di quadri dei sec. XVI-XIX e opere di fra' Roberto.(fonte: autori diversi (2008, seconda edizione): Guida d'arte della Svizzera italiana, a cura della Società di storia dell'arte in Svizzera (SSAS), pp. 374-375, Edizioni Casagrande, 604 pagine)
