Chestnut alley

This beautiful alley leads to the convent of the Sisters of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It is called by inhabitants of Nowy Sacz 'the White Convent' because of its white walls.
We posted it several times - you can see photos of the monastery here and here.
Now it is hidden behind the gate (and you can enter it not all the time) but some years ago this alley was the short cut for people who went to a mass to the church of Our Lady Immaculate which is situated just near the monastery.
This alley is surounded by chestnut trees. When there was no gate people, especially children, came there and picked chestnuts in autumn.
