Religious Site · Hidden Gem · Historic Site
Tour the medieval Dominican Monastery Claustrum to see dormitories, living quarters, and a library where generations of monks spent their lives through the centuries. Stroll along hallways where your voice echoes in the darkness and eerie Gothic statues hide in corners, then visit the large chapel with its crumbling brick walls. In the cellar of the complex lies a mysterious pillar: legend says it possesses forces that elevate you to a higher spiritual state and bring good health to those who come near it. If you're interested, the staff can organize thematic tours and programs at the site, which involve storytelling, costumes, and lit torches throughout the monastery's medieval walls.

  • Is a small place, but very medieval by the look of it. We just caught some glimpses from the outside.  more »
  • This is petite but beautifully preserved. Accessed via an ancient archway into the courtyard. The steps to the museum are old and uneven.  more »
  • Very beautiful place with ancient style and architecture. €3 to enter. Very beautiful inside. About a 10 minute tour to see everything inside. The chambers are very nice. Loved it here. The lady at the front desk explains the history when you pay for the tour and she is very detailed about everything and answers any questions.
  • St. Catherina's monastery is one of the remaining internal parts have been built in 1246 .... Thought to be a source of mental and physical health "columns" should be seen.
