  • if you want to see butterflies you will be utterly disappointed, since there are none there to be seen. the nature is nice but that 's it. 
  • We went there today. Very few people in this period but also little butterflies. The ride is very nice because under the trees, so to the fresh. Attention points up a bit. There are a lot of markets. Unfortunately, it there is no access for people who are struggling to move. The entrance is 3 euros at this time. Count a good half hour walk to reach the end without going to the monastery.
