I am back here! I have so many travel experiences to share but time is always limited now. I wish I can share more often in this blog even just photographs of the places I visited but with the many things that keep me busy the past 3 months, it is quite impossible. I will still my best to share my travels when time will allow me.
The Abbey of Saint Gall, known in German as Fürstabtei St. Gallen, is a Roman Catholic religious complex in the city of St. Gallen. It was founded by an Irish monk named Gallus around 613, a disciple and companion of Saint Columbanus, who established a hermitage on the site that would become the Abbey. In 1983, the Convent of St. Gall was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List as “a perfect example of a great Carolingian monastery”.
Today, I am sharing some images I took during my trip in St. Gallen, the capital of the canton of St. Gallen in Switzerland. This an interesting place especially its main tourist attraction known as the Abbey of St. Gall. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and its renowned library contains books which date back to the 9th century.
I had the chance to visit this place last winter 2013. There was no snow during my visit except in the mountains of Switzerland. It was actually a short stop-over we had in the city and I took the chance go around and visited some of its interesting sites. I am glad I made it until the Abbey of St. Gall.
I travelled alone that time but with a group of German tourists. It was only a short visit in St. Gallen but it was all worth it. I was planning to visit its Christmas market in December this year, but I rerouted my itinerary to Africa.
Until then my dear readers and friends. I wish you all a great weekend!
