Lubiąż Abbey also commonly known in English as Leubus Abbey, is a former Cistercian monastery in Lubiąż, in the Lower Silesian Voivodeship of southwestern Poland, located about 54 km northwest of Wrocław (Breslau). The abbey, established in 1175, is one of the largest Christian architectural complexes in the world and is considered a masterpiece of Baroque Silesian architecture. The area of the roofs is about 25,000 square meters. The façade, with a length of 223 m, is the longest in Europe after that of El Escorial in Spain. In the crypts are 98 well-preserved mummies of Silesian dukes.
Built over centuries, the abbey - the biggest Cistercian abbey in the world - is currently rated in the highest class ("0") of landmarks of the world's cultural heritage.
Since 1989, the abbey has been under renovation and has become a significant tourist destination.

un'abbazia imponente, molto grande e di bella architettura.
Ottima la luce, i colori sembrano un pò troppo saturi.

The red line from the roofs provides a good separatoion between the different parts of this picture. Also an intersting study of beautiful architecture.

A pleasant symmetrical composition of this well proportioned Leubus Abbey. The foreground paving provides additional interest and gives the image depth. Good light, colours and sharpness.
Have a nice weekend,
