The church stands behind an old building used as a farm storage. The presence of a boat in front of the ruins suggests that the sea is very very near.


We had to wait for nearly an hour for the very heavy rain to stop before we were able to get out of the car and visit the nice ruins of this old friary.

The most fascinating thing of these ruins is the east (90°) wall with a wonderful trefoil tall window, which is splayed on the inner side.
The north wall is still mostly standing, the south wall is missing the west half and the west gable is totally missing.
The church was built with a beautiful dark stone... or was it the rain that made it look darker?
