The round tower at Glendalough (Irish: Gleann Dá Loch, meaning "Valley of two lakes") i County Wicklow, Ireland is more than 1000 years old and was used for storage, a beacon for pilgrims, and as a high place from which to drop rocks upon the heads of pillaging vikings. This was an important destination for pilgrims for hundreds of years. I made this photo on August 12, 2013.
