The Abbey of Kells.

It resembles a classic medieval T-O Mappa Mundi. The high tower represents the center of the world Jerusalem, the street from the tower to the gate represents the Mediterranean Sea and the gate represents the Pillars of Hercules. In the final scene Abbot Cellach is in a bed placed on the higher part of a drawing of the Abbey, that part is the farthest east of the map and it was believed to be the actual position of the earthly paradise (Eden) in christian cartographic mythology in middle ages.
