The tall buildings, the location, the sky, the whole idea of the old monastery--all so fantastic!

Terrific shot. The hilltop castle looks magnificent.

Such breathtaking captures, Pietro! The beautiful monastery, the rich green, the mountain and gorgeous skies, all absolutely stunning! Your composition is superb as always. Another one of those places I'd love to visit, and as always, the next best thing to a real visit is your photos! Magnificent! Wishing you a lovely weekend!

Happy weekend!

É magnifico questo monastero quasi all'altezza del monte piú grande d'Ungheria (Kékes 1014m)vicinissimo al cielo.
ti invio una buona notte e baci

oh my god! stunningly beautiful place. we dont have that here. that makes me want to see that myself. and as usual the trek there will be great!

Le foto parlano da sole:-) fu una delle mie prime mete "turistiche", buon sabato Pietro ed un caro saluto.

Si erge superbo sullo sperone della roccia questo monastero per essere più vicino al cielo...scatto meraviglioso Pietro!!!

Un abbraccio e buon week-end!

buon wee-kend Pietro.

Ciao Pietro,
Since last night, Google started applying censorship in Turkey, many minor and major websites in Turkey are censored. I am unfortunately not able to see the images here as well hardly surfing. Hope this unacceptable situation comes to an end soon.
Wishing you nice weekend:)

Beautiful photos, Pietro with that wonderful clear air and amazing architecture. I hope you have a rewarding and pleasurable weekend.

What a wonderful view!!

Meravigli come sempre con le tue bellissime..."pennellate".
Buona domenica Pietro :-)

Hi Pietro! Absolutely stunnuing!!

Blogtrotter Two is departing Turkey 2009! Enjoy the views and have a great week ahead!!
Such an amazing view! I bet the view from the monastery is equally gorgeous too.
Very nice Pietro.

Un saluto Pietro e buon inizio di questa nuova settimana!

Cordialità e buon inizio..

ciao Pietro,
buon inizio di settimana con piú sole e meno pioggia:))

Grandiose !
Jusqu'où faut il monter pour trouver la paix ? Un emplacement idéal pour s'y recueillir, Piétro. On se sent bien petit, vu d'en bas.

Please tell me cars can go up that road.

Do people live in that monastery now? That is awesome.

Wow breathtaking Pietro.
Wonderful captures.

Great images, Pietro - will you show us more of the monastery?

Love the atmosphere of old monasteries -and on a rounded hill top -perfect!

I can easily feel the magical mystic. Lovely captures, Pietro. Finally we're back to normal navigation on i/net, no more distraction:) Oh, freedom is the best.

Monastery on the hilltop looks really magnificent. Both photos are wonderful on their own way.

Striking colours the flowers. And what a beautiful mountain view!

Che meraviglia ! Deve essere un posto magico

Fantasti shots of a very interesting building!

I wonder how they carried the supplies up. Is there easier access from the other side of the hill?

That is so beautiful! I really don't know how you manage to snap so many beautiful scenes.

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Come visit again. Have a great start to your week!
