Old St. Catherine's Church and Graveyard

I shared a post back in April of this ruin, this is a closer view as I walked around it.
The church was built around the 1400’s.

looking through, you can see ships in the harbour and a guy strimming the grass/weeds


another view looking inside toward the far side of the ruin, you can see a couple of gravestones

  7. I guess those gravestones have been long forgotten by the descendants of the people buried there.

  15. What a wonderful place to explore. I love that top photo. I read a book many years ago where two people in the story could go to places like this, sit in a meditative position, close their eyes and witness scenes from the past. Things that happened in that same location. That would be truly amazing and scary at the same time.
