Another stop on the tour was “The Galleria”- which is a grand gallery/glass domed shopping mall that was built between 1865 and 1877.  It is the oldest shopping mall in the world.

Yes, it does  feel  grand to walk  through the mall, even though it is full of out-of-my-budget shops and restaurants.

The photos hardly due it justice,  especially since I am trying to shoot over the  heads of  swarms of people inside.  But it gives you an idea.

While shopping at the  Galleria, legend has it that for  good luck,  you should  stop at the  bull and spin the heel of your foot on his testicles.
