Glendalough, County Wicklow
 

Glendalough is a monastic site that was founded by St. Kevin in the sixth century. The Gateway arches (below, center) lead you into the cashel where you will find the often-photographed Round Tower, remains of several churches and cathedrals, and old gravestones.

About 20 minutes west along a path through the woods, you pass by the lower lake on your way to the upper lake and the sloping mountains that surround it. There, the Caher, a stone walled circular enclosure next to a simple cross (pictured right), preside over the lake, mountains and woods which are filled with waterfalls, crosses, temples, and St. Kevin's bed and cell.
