"World Heritage Sites" Three Graces Tip by King_Golo
Three Graces, Liverpool: 7 reviews and 16 photos
The Liver Buildings (also nicknamed the Three Graces) down at the Mersey River are also a UNESCO world heritage site. Looking rather unspectacular from the outside, you might even miss them when walking past.
I don't know what's inside today, but in earlier years, the buildings played an important role in Liverpool's past as a port of world-wide reputation.
Take a look up to the top of the Liver Building on the very left (when looking towards the centre): You'll discover two birds sitting on top of the roof. According to my boss, these are a mixture between an eagle and a cormorant. While I'm not sure about this, I can tell you their symbolic meaning: One is looking towards the docks, the other towards the centre - and both are keeping a wary eye on what they see and watch over the city, for when the bird falls, Liverpool will fall as well!
