  • The monastery of San Pietro di Sorres is hard to review because its most important qualities may not be noticed by the passing visitor. The most interesting aspects of the monastery, are invisible and intangible and can be discovered only by those who decide to live a few days. 
The monastery has a small guest house consists of ten single rooms with bathroom and other rooms with multiple beds. Those who decide to stay at the monastery is not obliged to participate in religious services, but should be aware that it is not in a hotel, that will probably have to make the bed alone and will have to respect meal times and the rule of silence within some hours. 

There is no real Concierge service as in hotels, so although it can leave the monastery at any time, you may be unable to return, especially at night. 
The first to wake up the monks and the rooster. Most of the religious rites of the friars have suggestive songs accompanied by the sound of the organ. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in a large hall and constitute an important moment of conviviality with other guests of course all foods of the monks are simple, tasty and wholesome. 

Don't forget to visit the shop with the excellent products of the monks, library and restoration Center books. The monastery offers the quiet places of meditation and prayer as the cloister and the Park from where you can watch wonderful landscapes in the direction of the nearby villages of Borutta (to visit for the murals) and Torralba (to visit for the great Nuraghe Sant ' Antine). Other countries and archaeological sites to visit nearby are:-Cheremule, necropolis of Museddu. -Ittireddu, the village near the volcano, which will surprise you with its small but rich Museum. -Bonorva, Necropolis of Sant'Andrea Priu. Bottom line: recommend spending a few days in the monastery of San Pietro di Sorres to all people who want to have a pause for reflection or get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life.

  • Hard to put into words how it feels when visiting the Monastery, a place of peace and serenity, silence becomes the right company of the soul, in the contemplation of nature Divine charm. Just another dimension, the one closest to God. Thank you..

  • What you feel inside the convent is the serenity of the place, the silence is a must, I recommend the lunch with our brothers and sisters of the convent by reservation, simple meal but in good company.
