Mehna Monastery

on November 15, 2013

postcardsThis fantastic card comes from Torsten in Germany and shows Rehna Monastery which dates to the 1200s, if I am understanding the German correctly on the back of the card. The monastery is one of the largest in the area and was founded by Heinrich den Löwen (Henry of the Lions – I just love medieval names!). What a great card!
