Set by the Laacher Sea in Germany, is a lovely abbey, the Maria Laach Abbey. It is a Benedictine Abbey that has an ancient history. Dating back to the 11th century when it was built, the abbey has seen all the changes and suffered and prospered over the years. The 12th century saw this then independent house get converted into a studying center, and with the decline in its spiritual and monastic life in the 14th century it went into the shadows. Improvement began in the 15th century, and the result is what we see today. Over the years many prominent figures made additions to the structure, and what we see today is a blend the most magnificent German Romanesque architecture and Early Christian design. Enjoy this spiritual and architectural masterpiece.
