A massive monastery that will leave you stunned also for the richness of its filled interiors. The church, the monks' quarters and the royal rooms are all remarkable

Definitely worth visiting this beautiful palace. It's size is overwhelming especially the library. Spent nearly 2 hours wondering around and visiting the church attached to it. A bargain at €6 per adult and kids under 12 are free. Lots of parking around it and cafes...More
