2. Palacio Imperial and surroundings



Before starting with the update, it's time for...


Vivapanda: Thanks!! you won't be disappointed with this new update. :golly:

TowerDude: Thank you!! Those traffic crossings with the yellow grid are custom textures made by me, and I try to use as much custom content as possible in my cities, as you will see

keder: thank you!!

colco2121: thanks!! :golly:

TekindusT: Gracias!!

westy177: They are custom content, and I won't release it, because they are non functional eyecandy lots, i mean they aren't TE or cosmetic pieces so traffic can't go through them.

Simul8ter8: Thanks!! European average GDPs are quite high :D

Now we ended with the replies so we start our tour:

Today, we visit the Imperial Palace of Vistalegre, that was the Emperor's residence between the XVIIIth century, when it was built and late XIXth century, when a new palace was built in the outskirts of the city because of the capital's growth. Now it's a major tourist attraction in the city.


The Imperial Square was constructed in the early XIXth century. In its middle, a statue of José III, the Emperor who built this palace, was erected.



An overview of the square


Now, let's take a look to the palace gardens, right behind


And in the other side of the gardens, the Plaza de la Unión (Union square), built to conmemorate the union of the former kingdoms, with the two obelisks.


A closeup...


Now back in the Imperial Square, we find the Edificio de la Cancillería Imperial, where the administrative business of the Empire was made.


And the Imperial Square is also the place where the Vía Imperial (Imperial Way), Vistalegre's longest avenue starts.


To end our tour, a mosaic of the whole palace and imperial square.


P.S. Credits to Debussyman for making these outstanding BATs, the Reichstag and the Bâtiments de la Concorde (Palace and Cancillería here)

Hope you liked it!!! :golly:

Some shots of this update have reminded me an excellent CJ we had around some time ago, called [i]Berlin[/i] by [b]kelistmac[/b]. You seem to have inherited a part of this CJ, full of beauty and realism, combined with a fantastic lotting!
