AVALON

41 Avalon Poster

 

Avalon, a legendary island with many pseudo-historical accounts and featured in the Arthurian legend. King Author’s sword Excalibur, was said to be forged here and he himself recovered from his battle wounds on this mystical island. And according to our friends at Wikipedia, Isidore’s description reads:

“The name of the Isles of the Fortunate signifies that they bear all good things, as if happy and blessed in the abundance of their fruits. Serviceable by nature, they bring forth fruits of valuable forests (Sua enim aptae natura pretiosarum poma silvarum parturiunt); their hilltops are clothed with vines growing by chance; in place of grasses, there is commonly vegetable and grain. Pagan error and the songs of the secular poets have held that these islands to be Paradise because of the fecundity of the soil. Situated in the Ocean to the left of Mauretania, very near the west, they are separated by the sea flowing between them.”

May your escape to Avalon be as enchanting as you!
