Artist's Description

Ok, in fact it’s an abbey. Here you have some facts about it:

<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melk_Abbey"> Melk Abbey on Wikipedia </a>

Melk Abbey is one of the world’s most famous monastic sites. It is located near Danube. Founded in 1089 when Leopold II, Margrave of Austria gave one of his castles to Benedictine monks from Lambach Abbey.
A school was founded in the 12th Century, and the monastic library soon became renowned for its extensive manuscript collection. The monastery was also a major site for the production of manuscripts.

Umberto Eco named one of the protagonists in his well-known novel The Name of the Rose as a tribute to the abbey and its famous library “Adso von Melk”.
