Rock of Cashel

We stopped by the Rock of Cashel on our trip through Ireland.

According to local mythology, the Rock of Cashel originated in the Devil's Bit, a mountain 20 miles (30 km) north of Cashel when St. Patrick banished Satan from a cave, resulting in the Rock's landing in Cashel. Cashel is reputed to be the site of the conversion of the King of Munster by St. Patrick in the 5th century.

The Rock of Cashel was the traditional seat of the kings of Munster for several hundred years prior to the Norman invasion. In 1101, the King of Munster, Muirchertach Ua Briain, donated his fortress on the Rock to the Church. The picturesque complex has a character of its own and is one of the most remarkable collections of Celtic art and medieval architecture to be found anywhere in Europe. Few remnants of the early structures survive; the majority of buildings on the current site date from the 12th and 13th centuries.

A spectacular group of Medieval buildings set on an outcrop of limestone in the Golden Vale including the 12th century round tower, High Cross and Romanesque Chapel, 13th century Gothic cathedral, 15th century Castle and the restored Hall of the Vicars Choral.

<p>Der Rock of Cashel (irisch Carraig Phádraig), bei der Stadt Cashel, im County Tipperary in Irland gelegen, gilt als irisches Wahrzeichen. Als Sitz von Feen und Geistern wurde er schon im Altertum verehrt. <br />
<br />
Cormac's Chapel, die Kapelle von König Cormac Mac Carthaig von Munster, wurde im Jahr 1127 begonnen und im Jahre 1134 geweiht. Der Bau besteht aus einem Mittelschiff und einem Altarraum, wobei das Mittelschiff und der Altarraum nicht auf einer Linie liegen. Andere bemerkenswerte Merkmale sind u. a. ein Tonnengewölbe und das herrliche Nordtor.</p>			<p><a href="https://www.flickr.com/people/mazzarello/">PhotoXL</a> posted a photo:</p>
