A wonderful spiritual place full of silence, tranquility, stunning views and wonderful people. It is obligatory to visit it if you are in the region. It is worth buying splendid souvenirs made in the monastery and hand-made soap.

This monastery is off the beaten path and may even be a little hard to find..but it's worth it! Have a little adventure, be brave, see the horse drawn carts working in the fields...on your way to this place.It is beautiful inside..simple, but very interesting.
