Rock of Cashel, Cashel, Ireland

Rock of Cashel, Cashel, Ireland

The Rock of Cashel is one of the most spectacular archeological sites in Ireland. It sits on the outskirts of Cashel on a large mound of limestone bristling with ancient fortifications. Mighty stone walls encircle a complete round tower, a roofless abbey, a 12th century Romanesque chapel, and numerous other buildings and high crosses. This picture is taken from the Hore Abbey about one kilometer north at the base of the rock.
