Llanthony Priory




Llanthony Priory is a partly ruined former Augustinian priory in the secluded
Vale of Ewyas, a steep sided once glaciated valley within the Black Mountains,
area of the Brecon Beacons National Park in Monmouthshire south east Wales. It lies seven miles north of Abergavenny on an old road to Hay on Wye at Llanthony .The main ruins are under the care of  http://www.cadw.wales.gov.uk/


This foundation was reportedly begun towards the end of the 11th century when a knight was 'converted' after sheltering from a storm in a ruined chapel on the site, and led the life of a hermit for several years.
Eventually he was joined by a priest and a group of canons, and Llanthony Priory was established. In 1135, following a Welsh national rising, the canons had to leave their house at Llanthony, and took refuge in the Bishop's palace at Hereford while a new site was found for them outside of Gloucester, called Llanthony Secunda.

Towards the end of the 12th century, the canons returned to Llanthony to rebuild their priory, and what survives today is from this period. Although it sustained serious damage during the conquest of Wales and the revolt in the early 15th century, what remains today is remarkably well-preserved.
A large section of the north aisle arcade stands to full height, and there is even some of the original vaulting to be seen. Two walls of the crossing tower, showing their rounded window arches, survive almost untouched, and a good section of the south transept retains much of its detail.


Little survives of the claustral buildings, and part of the original prior's house was remodelled, along with the south west tower, to form the basis of accommodation for the present hotel. http://www.llanthonyprioryhotel.co.uk/
However, at the north end of this range is the vaulted outer parlour, and just south of this are three stone-vaulted undercrofts - one of which has been delightfully transformed into the hotel's cellar bar.


The 13th century parish church of St Mary, on the opposite side of the car park to the priory ruins, is believed to have been the infirmary chapel although, because of extensive alteration over the centuries, there is no real evidence to substantiate this. Immediately before the car park entrance, there are fragments of Llanthony Priory gatehouse just visible amongst the undergrowth and farm outbuildings.




The solitude and beauty of Llanthony Priory is captured by the fabulously wild countryside encompassing it, and the dramatic mountainous backdrop providing a wonderful sense of perspective. This is a romantic and magical setting where it is still possible to shut out the intrusive ways of the 21st century and simply unwind in the absolute peace and tranquility of these haunting monastic ruins.

Thanks to my dear friend Stew Maw,
 
I was privileged to see this unique place.

BON APPETIT

Bog je stvorio Grand Canyon ali on živi u Sedoni!!!



Rečenica iz naslova je 100% tačna!!
Tvrdi se da potiče od indijanaca(a od koga bi drugo?) ali sada je svi lokalci i turisti koriste.

zanimljiva kuća
Sedona je udaljena 120 milja od Phoenix-a.U njoj živi oko 11.000 stanovnika.Prostire se na površini od oko 50 kvadratnih kilometara.,od toga 51% je u privatnom vlasništvu a ostatak pripada Coconino National Forest!http://www.fs.fed.us/r3/coconino/


Prosečcna nadmorska visina je oko 1330 metara Najviša tačka je Coffe Pot Rock koji se nalazi na oko 1700 metara nadmorske visine.Prosečna starost stanovnika je 50 godina.Što u prevodu znači da morate imati dubok džep kako bi ste kupili kućerak.U blizini ima "vikendicu" i nesuđeni presednik USA http://uncyclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/John_McCain
Lako je njemu ima dobru penziju.
Oko 3 mliona turista poseti Sedonu svake godine.Medju njima i moja malenkost.i to dva puta!!!

Sedonu još nazivaju Red Rock Country.
Evo zašto.

 
 
 
 
  
evo i mene na crvenim stenama 
Kao što sam napisiao,Sedonu sam posetio dva puta.Prvi put sam išao kolima a drugi put avionom.
Obavezna razonoda u Sedoni je tzv.Jeep Tours.Nisam morao da  koristim njihove usluge jer smo imali sopstveni auto koji se dobro pokazao.Drugar mi je predložio da obiđemo destinaciju koja je proslavila Sedonu.Zove se Broken Arrow po istoimenom westernu iz 1950 godine.Glavni Baja je bio James Stewart
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0042286/
Stewart je uglavnom jahao tuda a mi  vozikali našu Toyota Tacuma
i zadavali domaći turističkim džipovima.

                                                                     naš auto





                                                       ne  znaju  šta ih je snašlo

turisti u Pink Jeep-u 


uparkirani

Garisha  ispred našeg dike i ponosa



nema nazad 
Zaista jedno divno iskustvo za mene.Moj garisha Adža je pokazao slabašnim amerima kako srbadija vozi.
BTW imali smo gde i da naučimo.Mislim naši putevi su oglavanom gori ,pa i nije bio neki problem da rasturimo amere:)
Šta još ima da se vidi u Sedoni?
Jedna od najposećenijih i najslikanijih atrakcija je  The Chapel Of  The Holy Cross(kapelica svetoga mu krsta!!).
http://www.chapeloftheholycross.com
Nisam stručnjak za arhutketuru a kamoli za religiju ali se stvarno mora odati priznanje domaćici koja je osmislila ovo.Na ulazu lepo piše da su dobrodošli ljudi bilo koje rase i vere.
U to ime pozdravljam.
 
 
Da ne bude da se samo ja fotofrafišem,evo malo fotki crkvice.




 


Sedona je poznata po mnogobrojonm galerijama.Pošto je u istim uglavnom zabranjeno fotografisanje ,evo mog izbora od spolja:)

 


Zahvaljujući mom garishi Michu,drugi put sam posetio Sedonu avionom.
Da li sam uživao?Hm,Hm.
Šta mislite?





       
                                                                unutrašnjost Mitchovog aviona


                                          Garisha na aerodromu

odavde se poleće ili sleće 


Gde su smestili aerodrom? 


Kome nije dosta fotografija,može da pogleda zvanični sajt aerodroma .
http://sedonaairport.org/
Šta još ima da se vidi i radi?
Recimo ima mnogo iscelitelja,psihoalanitičara i inih koji čak organizuju ture.Nazivi su npr:Sedona Vortex tour,Authentic Spiritual Psyhic Healer,Sedona Psyhic Wisdom itd.
Nisam ih proveravo.U mojoj državi ima mnogo" iscelitelja" ali retko koji pomaže.
Jednostavno nisam hteo da kvarim doživljaj Sedone.
Zamisli da se izlečim?
Ako se jednog dana vratim,možda mi i pomognu:)
A vratiću se sigurno jer:

"God created the Grand Canyon but he lives in Sedona"

Bar da proverim da li i dalje stanuje ovde?
