  • One of the most beautiful and serene places I have ever visited. The nuns run a tight ship so any conversation that are too Loud is controlled. It's such an amazing experience to walk around, revel in the scriptures and daily words and see people from around the world. The gardens itself are well taken care off.
  • Another beautiful church by Galilee Sea. The church itself is small but the octagonal shape makes it unique. The surrounding grounds are scenic for walks and quiet thinking.
