Franciscan Monastery, Denekamp - NETHERLANDS

This card was sent by a postcrosser from Belgium that went on a trip to the Netherlands and it shows na old Franciscan monastery in Denekanp - I couldn't find much information about the village (at least in english), probably because it's such a small place (less than 8000 inhabitants), but the monastery seems quite impressive. Thank you very much Henk, I hope you had a nice time there and a great Christmas Holidays. This postcard took 16 days to arrive!
