    The smallest but the most cute... and there will be less crowded than in the Great meteor! I recommend a trip to this monastery

    If this monastery was by itself somewhere I'm sure we would have rated it higher, but it just isn't quite as exciting as some of the other monasteries.  more »

    Its a small but lovely monastery. Its interesting to see and understand how a nunnery worked... It has a nice small garden as well and beautiful views.
