Leça do Balio Monastery #1


As promised, today, the start of a new series of photos from “old” Gargoyles. This monument, Leça do Balio Monastery isn’t very much known, even in Portugal. Nevertheless, it’s on of the oldest in northern Portugal, over 1000 years (the Gargoyles came later – Gothic period). Even before, at the same place, there was a roman temple, dedicated to Jupiter – 1st century!
