  • Very beautiful place. A must see. If you have the chance, try to lunch at the restaurant. Entrance, looking at the main entrance of the monastery, around the left side.

  • Beautiful monastery
  • Amazing place. Amazing village
  • It is a real Marvel, impressive. A penalty only be visited with a guide, take you to the race along all the monastery without time to contemplate the wonders he has inside. It is one visit express and you stay with bad taste in the mouth. Yet it is must-see because it is impressive.
