Ter Apel Monastery

The ´Klooster Ter Apel´ or Ter Apel Monastery is a former monastery in the village of Ter Apel, in the northeastern Dutch province of Groningen. It´s the only remaining rural monastery from the Middle Ages in the Netherlands. The convent buildings house a museum for monastery and church history and for religious art, as well as 2 contemporary art galleries. The former lay church still functions as a reformed church.

A detail from the other side. I visited the monastery this morning and also took some photos inside, so more will follow in the coming days.
