Campile

This village grew up around Dunbrody Abbey, one of the most imposing Cistercian abbeys. The abbey dates back to the early 13th century. Campile derives its name from the river Pil on which it is located. It became well known in the 1940's, when it was accidentally bombed by Hitler's Luftwaffe.
