You feel the internal peace as soon as you cross the entrance. Not much to see but this is exactly what to expect when visiting a place like this.

I discovered this while wandering the town of Helsingor and on my way to Kronborg Castle and am glad that I found this. This was a beautiful church and the cloister on the church/monastery was interesting. Peaceful, quaint and beautiful.

We found this gem on our way to Elsinore (just a short walk from the castle) - it is a lovely old (1430) medieval Carmelite monastery and church (we were informed that it is one of the best preserved medieval monasteries in Northern Europe. )...More
