  • Spectacular place, mix of cultures and architectonic styles. Worth visiting
  • 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.
  • Amazing place. Amazing village
  • The monastery is spectacular and worth visiting it. The treatment of the Guide and the personal in general leaves much that wish. Bad education. It is a pity, not be are thinking because it goes against their own interests. The monk who shows you the image is a presentable, making friends, I think that you should have problems... actually gave me grief.
