If you are familiar with the history of Medieval Europe, then you surely know how much the continent was shaped by religion. It used to be an important part of people’s lives and religious figures held a lot of power. No wonder that a lot of money was spent on construction of sacral buildings such as churches, cathedrals, or monasteries.

Monasteries, on the other hand, were modest – one could not possibly reject earthly pleasures while surrounded by opulence!

At first glance, it looks all lovely but don’t let the village fool you by its cute exterior – it has quite a story to tell!
