    The monastery lives in harmony with nature so beautiful and your stillness and birds around spending a great peace. I haven't had a chance, but I would love to do a retreat at the site.

    On Sundays the monastery is open to public visitation and retreats, they offer the calendar on their website. It's a place with a lot of nature, a lot of peace and beautiful sculptures. In the visitation, there is a brief explanation of meditation and a time to practice it.

    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.

Where to stay in Vitoria

The two main neighborhoods to stay in when exploring Vitoria are Praia do Canto and the area close to Parque Moscoco. Hotels dominate the selection here, with simple rooms in chain and independent lodgings, alongside luxury options. Budget-conscious travelers will find side street hostels appealing, as well as the more basic among the collection of pousadas (guesthouses) in the city. Stay closer to the airport, or the main bridges leading off the island, if you wish to get out of town on a regular basis to explore other areas of the state.
