WEEKLY WINNERS


More participants here at Sarcastic Mom Weekly winners


Not so far from my home are the ruins of the Abbey of Villers la Ville, from the 13th century.
It was beautiful to walk around and in the ruins.






These are only two pictures you can see more here

Mesmerizing! I'v read that the abbey in Villers la Ville (Cistercienzers) was founded in 1147 and those ruins are amongst the most prestigious ones in Europa..

How beautiful, Gattina. I'm getting such lovely ideas of where to visit from the pictures you put up on your posts. That old abbey is just lovely...even if it is a ruin.

I just LOVE these types of places when I see them. I itch to travel. One itch that I cannot scratch--just yet--but someday I will buy a special stick to scratch deeply! LOL

I love to go to places like this and when Hubby and I were Euro hopping we went to places like this quite often. Beautiful shots!

Such a beautiful place.

I would have LOVED to go with your walking through the ruins. Historical things and places like this are always so intriguing and I always wonder what the walls could tell us.

Have a terrific day and afternoon Gattina.

I t must be nice to have historic ruins to visit. Here we do not build anything to last long enough to some day be visited as ruins.
Our Northern historical edifices are burned down or bulldosed when no longer used.

Beautiful ruins! I'll come back as soon as possible to see more! Non, je n'ai pas abandonné la bloggosphère!!! Je voudrais être plus présente mais j'avais tellemnt de trucs à faire ce WE! En plus entre les problèmes d'amour de mes deux filles et maintenant Anaïs qui a des soucis avec sa famille!!! Je pense qu'elle va devoir chercher une autre famille rapidement car le mari passe son temps à gueuler sur sa femme et la gosse à faire des caprices et pleure presque non stop!
Bob je fais juste un petit saut chez Tor et au dodo! A demain!

What a beautiful place to explore! It looks so vintage/antique-y there. I look forward to your pics every week since I don't get to travel much :)
