  • Although it is suffering from a disease state typical of our people: I know our places. But, in the case of the monastery that evil is solved, met on May 28 day and I was surprised. Different than you can imagine, the monastery is a place of peace and sublimation, but of learning and attitude. In addition, every corner, every representation, water sources, plants, flowers, and even the cemetery "talk" to anyone who wants to hear. A charming place and just inches away from the capital Victoria.

  • This monastery is in Ibiraçu, more or less 1 hour drive from Victoria. Except for a few exceptions throughout the year, the monastery is open for visits on Sundays morning. The visitor is guided, with volunteers explaining about the facilities and the routine of the monastery. Is offered also a workshop "zazen", an exercise in concentration/meditation. The monastery also has a gift shop selling t-shirts, food and other small items. The monastery charges a small entrance fee and just need reservations in the case of large groups.

  • Beautiful place that inspires the inner peace! 😊 🙏 responding to Marlon Barreto, the visits are in the Sun 8:00 at 12:00 hours. If family in small numbers do not need to make an appointment, if you need to schedule groups.
