Monasterio de Santo Toribio de Liebana, Potes in pictures

 

The monastery is situated a few kilometres from Potes overlooking the Picos de Europa.

 

The views from the grounds are spectacular.

 

Now a public spectacle, the monastery has been in service since the 1300s.

 

The architecture is very typical of the region and Spain in general.

 

Sweep looks like he's up to something. Tinkle alert...

 

This tower sits on a bluff a few hundred metres from the main building.

 

The monastery is heavy on carvings and symbolism (much of it very Masonic).

 

Nothing is left 'unsymbolised'. The heart shaped apostles were a bizarre touch.
