Glendalough (7/18)

A major religious and cultural centre complete with it’s round tower, round tower and many churches, this site by the lake is a must see. See the monks walking barefoot along the waters edge on a old foggy morning. The majestic oak trees from this site were used to build the second longest Viking ship ever recorded around 1042, a replica of which is currently displayed in Roskilde, Denmark.
