Convent of Mafra, the Library - Mafra, Portugal
Taken by me :)
About 30.000 books are stored in Mafra’s library, some of them estimated to be 500+ years old. From bibles translated into an insane amount of languages, to books about geography, music, law, arts, and all the subjects you can imagine. I asked the tour guide if there was a section in the library that was hidden. You know, because of inquisition and all. She said she doesn’t know every corner of that library but believes that there are secret passages in there that lead to more specific books, hidden by monks and nuns. You can actually request the books for your own consultation, under special supervising and strict rules for manoeuvring the tomes. That’s awesome.

i have never seen a more accurate post
Here comes one of my favourite parts of the year - August and September. Fully bloomed all around and it’s almost time to harvest… I spend lots of time in the woods and travelling those months, but never forget to get together my friends here, in my little cabin in the woods.
