  • A paradise within the reach of all. Easy access by car. If you have any trouble, call ahead and let your car should climb to the reception. And buy the plug as soon as he arrives, because they end up fast

  • Very nice location, well maintained, several gardens, beautiful landscape, passing by the BR101 in Espirito Santo, is worth knowing.

  • A great place to reflect on the respect for the environment under the Buddhist perspective. The monastery is located on a forested Hill and trail, gazebo and locations for family recreation. It opens on Sunday morning to free or guided visitation, but as some periods of the year the monastery is closed is a good idea to check on site availability for visitation. Practically there is no option for power in the region.
