Monastery

Bosjökloster - A photo story among roses, towers and old oaks - Skåne

Skåne has many beautiful castles and manors, but this summer I visited the fairytale castle Bosjökloster for the first time. Or as I should really call it - a fairytale monastery.

Convento dos Capuchos – The abandoned monastery outside Sintra – Portugal

In the middle of the forest near Sintra, lie the ruins of the old monastery Convento dos Capuchos. Abandoned and overgrown, it still shows the extremely simple life that the monks here lived.
