The year 1389? It amazes me so how a structure can still be standing after that long, that's over SIX HUNDRED YEARS! Incredible

It sure does look like a convent doorway. It actually looks like a Nun's wimple. MB

1389? That's like over 600 years ago. In Vegas, when it's 30 years old, we blow it up. But then we don't build like you do.
Lovely photo.
