I’ve read the article and I have found that Rievaulx Abbey reminds me of a ruined monastery here in Spain, San Pedro de Arlanza, in Burgos, a beautiful place by a singing river.
Anyway, England is so interesting and has so many places to visit that I should need two lives to visit them all!
My favorite ruins are those of Fountains Abbey.
