|Gallarus Oratory, Dingle Peninsula, Ireland|
The Gallarus Oratory is in an excellent state of repair despite the fact that it hasn’t been restored. This perfect example of a dry stone building style has withstood the formidable Atlantic elements for over 1200 years! Additionally, this remarkable structure withstood, like most of Ireland, attacks by successive invaders. Vikings and Anglo-Normans burned, pillaged and destroyed the settlements around Gallarus.
