Hi Juliana. I've loved pictures and churches. They are a great aténtica, these constructions. The one I liked most is the wooden espectacular.Realmente is very nice as well as it has a sort of terrace around. He has also fascinated me that dome virgin, in the garden or forest.
Thank you very much for sharing. Wonderful place and photo.

Мене завжди вражала духовна міць Василіансьських монастирів. Ці місця є святими і щоразу як відвідуєш один із них відчуваєш душевний та фізичний спокій.
