To find a ruin in Ireland, for fear of being more suitable than the sleek Glendalough. Glendalough means the canyon between the two lakes in Irish, which, as its name implies, is a secluded valley with two lakes.
The granary and round tower of Glendalough Monastery, which is closer to Taniguchi than the lake, is full of quaint and subtle atmosphere, and this piece of treasure is covered with a mysterious veil. As we walked through a path of blue flowers and pine cones on the ground, a large ruined wall with a cemetery appeared in front of us.
When the heyday, the monks here reached 3,000 people, and the Vikings harassed and looted over the years, but they failed to withstand the destruction of the British army of Henry VIII, the monastery of the 16th century. It was destroyed and abandoned. Only the remains of the four-walled cathedral are the largest remnants of existence.
Going deep into the valley, the first lake to see first is not too big. The shore of the lake just meets a group of sheep who are grazing leisurely, so that this picture instantly becomes agile. The second lake, which went up for another ten minutes, was one of the locations of Mel Gibsons grand epic film Braveheart.
