In the U.S., we call such a roof a "hipped" roof. Nice shot!

I never would have thought this is a monastery, but how beautiful in its simplicity. And a great triangle, of course!

What an inspiring photo to see first thing Easter morning. Beautifully shot and artistically chosen

Is there many steps going up to the chapel? It looks very lovely and I'll bet the view from the top is spectacular as well. I can see why they chose to place a monastery there, you would feel so close to G-d.
