Echternach Abbey

Originally founded in 698 by St. Willibrord, an English monk from Ripon, Northumbria, the region where my mother's family comes from.

  1. It's funny how buildings "tell" you what they are, but understanding them at a glance is not always possible if you're looking at buldings from a different coutnry. I'd never have guessed this was an abbey. A college perhaps? Interesting.

  5. Thanks for the comments.

    Jenny Woolf: I, too, would expect something more austere and religious-lööking for an abbey.

    Remei: Graciès.

    joo: Dziękuję.

    Cezar and Léia: Yes, I think Echternach is even more worth visiting than Saarburg.
