In the 6th century, St. Kevin founded a monastery in the enchanting valley of Glendalough turning it into a highly esteemed place of learning which attracted students and monks from all over Europe. Despite repeated Viking attacks, the monastery stood its ground until the 14th century when it was destroyed in a blaze in 1390, leaving only ruins. Our model includes the famous church of St. Kevin, a typical example of houses of prayer of that period, the completely preserved 33 m high round tower with its entrance 3.5 m above the ground, some typical high crosses and the remains of the wall.
