The outside of this building, while impressive, belies the magnificence inside. Stunning architecture, sculpture, breathtaking altars. Plan on 1.5-2.5 hours to do this justice.

I could have stayed here for hours there are so many rooms to visit! I loved the stamps and presses as well as the amazing woodwork. I highly recommend this while you’re near the Catedral.

With almost no visitors, we were able to enjoy a tour of this Monastery in peace, without the hassle of the Tourist crowd in the nearby streets. Its worth the visit, just for the alter and its peaceful serenity.

This monastery is worth visiting and is has quite a lot to see. It also has a hotel you can stay in which is quite an experience even though the rooms are quite small.
