Hidden place. If bus tour didn't take you it would be hard to find. I enjoyed the Monastery and the history our guide gave us. The grounds were very nice when we where there in October. The restrooms were fine as well.

A very nice quiet spot to go hiking. Short trail goes along the river. Did not get to visit the other areas of the monastery but will go back next year to do more.

It is an ok place to visit and learn of the history. Secluded area not particularly well manicured. Bathroom was nasty. It is serene and peaceful. One of the monks was sitting in the sunlight dozing or meditating.

Another beautiful area with well kept grounds. Several areas to walk around. The gift shop was closed for lunch when we visited and we would have loved to have seen it as well.

This area does make one reflect on spiritual thought and its connection to nature. So nice to see peaceful area and hear birds at a time when everyone rushes. Terror on the world is crushed by this hopeful place

We saw this on the trolley tour. We were allowed to get out and explore the chapel too. The grotto was beautiful, the grounds were perfect for a day of meditation and reflection.

Our experience of this peaceful and pleasant place was in direct contrast to the bitter and destructive comments written earlier by some obviously rather unhappy people. Our room was spacious, spotless and comfortable. The beds very comfortable and the linen clean. The staff were exceptionally...More
