Møyskriv or 'The Virgin's Leap' is a deep split, each falls vertically from the top to the bottom some 600 meters below. A saga tells the story of a young girl who was condemned to death, bus was given the chance to go free if she could jump over the gap between the two stone blocks at the top of the split in the rock. She managed the challenge and went free - hence the name!There is a story from here about the time they tried to send timber down the cliff with the help of a capstan and rope. The attempt was a disaster with the whole capstan tipping over and disappearing down the mountain together with rope and the timber!

Surrounded by palm trees and caressed by the wind blowing off the Mediterranean, the marble tombstones of the Tangier Jewish cemetery share their color with the brilliant white sand of the beach they overlook. The city’s Jewish community is diminished, but still active, and continues to care for the site. Though the cemetery has recently had problems with vandalism, major work is underway to weed and clean the site and its 3500 tombs, as well as pave its roads and paths. Researchers from Diarna, the Geo-Museum of North African and Middle Eastern Jewish Life, have documented scores of synagogues, cemeteries, schools, shrines, and other strucutres throughout the country.

This is the title of the song you hear when you check out Kate Russell’s latest Webscape on BBC’s “Click”.

But the planet spins, and the world goes ’round-

But the world goes ’round

But the world goes ’round


This program is BBC’s flagship for technology. The Click team describes it as “the best debate on global technology, social media and the Internet” or “your guide to all the latest gadgets, websites, games and computer industry news”.

This is the third time 360Cities has appeared in this program. Webscape host, Kate Russell (@katerussell), says about the 360Cities app:

Thanks to the Click review, the 360Cities app made it to #1 in the UK iTunes store. Now, even more people are traveling with the 360Cities app around the World.

We’d like to thank to all of the 360Cities photographers who are building a Panoramic World by creating such amazing panoramas.

We want the World to go ’round!
