H. A. N. W. E. everyone! Monasterio de Nuestra Senoria de La Hoz

H. A. N. W. E.  everyone! Monasterio de Nuestra Senoria de La Hoz
Situated in the spectacular Hoces del Duraton, Segovia Province.
Built in the 13th century but flattened by the collapse of the rocky spur above it. I couldn't find any reference to loss of life so I presume (and hope) that the monks abandoned it at the first sign of danger!
Viewers have suggested enlarging it (the photo, not the monastery!)

Great angle stance to see the monastery. Unfortunately it is no longer accessible due to the damage. Be careful for those great shots. Was this a river along the bottom?
2 years ago.
Andy Rodker club has replied to Ke Marshall
Thank you, Ke.
It's accessible by water! This river is used by many canoeing or kayaking (I don't really know the difference!) clubs and is well known as a place for beginners. The river opens out into a reservoir just a short distance downstream from here (although still narrow by reservoir standards as it fits snugly into the confines of the gorge which extends for many miles). The river is very low as it is at the end of the very dry Summer season; I would like to return and see it in Spring.
This is the river only a mile or so downstream: www.ipernity.com/doc/2247598/45475888/in/album/998284
