Default To Royaldevon: monastery

bev

there are other monastery in the city and all of them are surrounded by ramparts, even the masculine ones. it was a way to present invaders during the wars and, at same time, prevent the people outside had contact with the religious living inside. even if those women escaped from there they wouldn't have a way to survive in another place.

take care
