We really enjoyed our visit to this beautiful place. The small museum was fascinating. It is out of the way and took a little finding.

It was beautiful and so peaceful. I went a couple of times, just walking around. I enjoyed the bridge coming up and over into the area, and the river that was so close. It made the whole area nice.

This is in the grounds of an old convent which is reputed to be haunted. The convent holds a museum though we did not venture in.

Tranquil, beautiful, historic. Just a very pleasant place to walk around and see something you won't see anywhere else because the old almshouse is still a working place for retired women. It's very nice to see an appreciate that.
