Doesn't take long to visit. Great panoramic view outside, pretty church and fabulous cloisters. Great place to take in ahead of visiting Sermoneta or on your way out. Loads of parking in the shade and no entrance fee just some boxes for donations.

Very old and timeless place. Monks here produce oil and chocolate. If you like the "Vampire Chronicles" mood, this is the place.
