This is a beautiful abbey in the middle of the countryside. We visited the church, the shop where homemade products are sold, the garden, and then wandered behind the abbey past the long walls of the complex into the countryside. There are great views and...More

This was my first experience of touring a monastery. I went with an Italian friend and we took the guided tour in Italian with a young monk. The Italian was a bit rapid for me but I understood enough to appreciate what I saw and...More

It's an impressive building, in a gorgeous countryside setting. Gardens are very nice, they have many plants and flowers and herbs and the smell is very good. During the Vespers you can sit in church and hear the friars singing: very relaxing. The guide (a...More
