The friendly monks of the place explained to us the history of the place. Additional to that we watched the service. Only us were present so it felt even more special. Their chants are interesting to watch.

The building which witnessed the Last Supper having replaced by the Church, considered to be the first church after Jesus's resurrection .Believed to be the place where Mary stayed with John. Reminisce of the immortal Leonardo da Vinci Last Supper gave us divine experience.
