Interesting and intricate facade. I love the Benedictines and have used their monasteries for lodgings (worldwide) and retreats when I need it. Kathleen Norris wrote _The Cloister Walk_ about the Abbey in Collegeville, MN-a charming read.

I should take a look at it, the book that is. I like reading about peoples spiritual journeys. This is the chapel, part of a much larger building and its a nunery. I think the latin inscription says something about when it was built, though there's more than that I think.
