It is a cloister of living nuns and thus, visits take place at appointed hours and part of the building is closed to the public. The choir dates back to the thirteenth century. The church is beautiful (all gilded altar) and the visit includes a...More

Great guided tour to an 800 years convent that is still active. You can go up and see from upclose the original roof top. It also includes a very complete ethnographic museum.

The outside of this building is quite plain but once inside, there are multiple reasons to be awed by the art and architecture. The altar is the centerpiece.

This convent has a rather strange set-up. A very friendly woman shows people around but you can only get in every hour or so. The lady escorts you to various parts and then lets you look around yourself or at times accompanies you. There are...More
