treasures in alabama

File this under things you never thought existed in Alabama.

This is the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrement, located on the grounds of Our Lady of the Angels Monastery in Hanceville, Alabama. It is a Roman Catholic monastery housing a community of Poor Claire nuns.

The Shrine, based on San Francesco de Assisi in Assisi in Italy

The entrance to the Enclosure, the entrance to the Monastery. Only sisters are allowed beyond that point.

A statue of St. Francis of Assisi in the courtyard before the pilgrim's entrance.
