  • The monastery is beautiful! The architecture is lovely. Enter there takes you to another place ... silence ... a peace. If you get a guided tour inside the monastery is worth a lot to visit. Do you have any books there quite old.

  • The current architecture was completed at the end of the 19th century, built in neoclassical style, with a fantastic Renaissance dome that lights the whole ship. A barrel vault gives special grace to the nave. The paintings, stained glass Windows, murals, frescoes and sculptures are by local sparingly and harmonic. Amazing carved wooden pulpits are spread here and there, as well as the confessionals. The floor is also beautiful, as everything there. Is a discrete and quiet beauty. I, card-carrying atheist, always surrender to the fantastic Roman Catholic buildings around the world. And this does not owe the other world-famous Christian temples.

  • A place simply divine, you can't fall in love with this place, your interior is endowed with a lot of wealth of details.
