Descripción del sitio
Once the largest and most important monastery in England, Rievaulx Abbey now lies in ruins in a beautiful and tranquil valley.
Rievaulx was the first Cistercian abbey in northern England and its ruins are among the most atmospheric in the region. The monks liked the place, too: one Rievaulx abbot described his surroundings as "everywhere peace, everywhere serenity."
