San Juan de la Peña, Huesca, España
Website:

Here we can see what remains of the former cloister of the monastery of San Juan de la Peña. The monastery is a huge rock shelter, which gives it its name (in spanish ´San Juan de la peña´ = ´Saint John of the rock´). Surely the upper structure of the cloister was destroyed in one of the two fires that ravaged the monastery in 1494 and 1675.
