A fabules Urbex subject. This is part of an abandoned building in Belgium. It used to be a monestry, a hospital, at some point it was used as a prison and a militairy base.
It was built in 1817 and abandoned in 1988. And now parts are pretty dangerous to enter. Walls come down, and at some parts the roof has collapsed. On other parts its barely hanging on.

These buildings need some serious TLC.

    OK, let’s say that in Belgium, they finally understood that a Ghost is free whatever you do, so better to leave the door unlocked anyway :P What a great one with a nice POV ;-) Like it a lot. Well done Nicole.

    I hope that ghost didt come home with me …
