  • The Church is enormous, and the monastery still works. Everything is well preserved, although today it may seem empty. Attests to the richness of the Benedictines in the colonial period, once owned a lot of land.

  • Participate in a mass with the choir of the monastery is thrilled anyone is religious or atheist. The atmosphere is the best possible and instead breathes History.

  • See the Sunday mass with choir of monks singing Gregorian chant and then visit the Museum of the monastery. The side has a small shop with religious souvenirs and the famous bricelet made by the Benedictine nuns of hunting grounds. Worth after mass, go to the next to receive an individual blessing with the monk who is on duty to serve the community. Remember to go dressed quietly and avoid "intrusions" during mass.
