View of Valle Crucis abbey and Dinas Bran, Llangollen
The Cistercian Abbey of Valle Crucis is located in a remote valley. It was founded in 1201 by Madoc ap Gruffydd Mador, prince of Powys. After the house's dissolution in 1538, the abbey fell into decay, leaving the romantic ruin in the picture. The ruins of Dinas Bran can also be seen in the picture, perched on top of the mountain.
