Located in the middle of Ireland on the Shannon side, Clonmacnoise is very known for its several churches and grave stones... in ruins. From the sixth century, this historic and religious site have seen so many wars, theft, and fires, that it is almost surpising that the is something left... even ruins. At that time, Clonmacnoise was famous for its religious instruction, with an impressive library. Pilgrims used to, and still use to walk until this monastery every year. The pope John Paul II came to Clonmacnoise during his journey throughout Ireland in 1979, gathering thousands of people.
