Ettal Abbey, Bavaria, Germany -- Let's take a look at the exterior. Although this was a monastery from the1300s, it assumed its present form pretty much during the South German baroque period when most buildings had to be rebuilt after a 1744 fire. Some buildings were later tore down but rebuilt in the early 1900s when this land was restored as a Benedictine monastery.
