  • It is really very little to see here. Just the church and small terrace with beautiful flowers. If you need to choose a few of the monasteries which you would like to visit - I would not recommend this one.

  • My favourite of the monasteries we've been to in the area. Small and less to see, but more picturesque. It is beautifully kept with lots of gorgeous flowers, and the nuns make their own honey and herbal mixes to sell. I also found the souvenirs here to be less mass-produced than the other monasteries. Beautiful views and less crowded than the more popular monasteries.
