Enclosed between precipitous cliffs, and creeping up their sides as they recede along each shore of the river from the sea, the town itself is scarcely to be seen until very nearly approached, though the situation is well pointed out by the ruins of its once stately abbey, which, unlike most other monastic institutions as to site, occupies the highest land in the immediate vicinity, and is visible for many miles in every direction.
