This very tranquil place is great for quick stop off. It has beautiful grounds, statues, and stained glass windows. It also has a gorgeous outdoor chapel.

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.
