  4. Leia,
    I didn't know that this place was so beautiful. Unfortunately, i didn't visit it when I've been at Barcelona. For sure, I'll do it at my next time there.

  5. This place is so breathtaking it's almost unbelievable, incredible, surreal! Your photos are superb, also…I especially like #'s 1, 2 and the one of the organ pipes. I think you ought to frame and hang #'s 1 and 2!

    One can't help but wonder how much money and back-breaking toil has gone into making this place what it is today.

    I've got to put it on my “bucket list.”

    Oh, love your header photo, too, as well as your background. Spring has sprung in Luxembourg!

  12. What would I do without your lovely photos and words to allow me to travel the world with you? You are so right, and the beauty of the monastery is rivaled by the surrounding countryside.
