  • Incredible place to see high up on windy road with handicap parking and also they serve nice home made food and wine . I was so amazed with the atmosphere that didn't thin about taking many pictures of beautiful paintings
  • Serene and peace. The architecture is impressive. The history and the views are breathtaking
  • Stunning location for a very important Catholic monastery, St. Francis of Assisi.
  • A lovely morning. A very friendly and helpful nun explained the different areas of the Santuario.
  • The area is very well preserved, green and very calming. Be sure to take a walk among the trees and watch the sunset.
