Ter Apel Monastery (2)

This is in one of the wings of the Ter Apel Monastery. Even after several renovations (note the central heating on the right wall underneath the windows) it's not hard to imagine that this has existed for centuries. As the monastery is located along the ancient trade route from Münster to Groningen, passing travelers and pilgrims once found a place of hospitality and dedication here.

I chose B&W for the first photo, though very much liked the kind of mint-green that this part of the arched ceiling was painted in.

  1. Monasteries, from their inception, were significant places of help and refuge throughout Europe...some more so than others, but general speaking, they were a blessing to society.
