  • Excellent natural environment, protected properly. You can access with own vehicle to the interpretation centre. Once there you can choose to go on a bus that makes the route up to the monastery or rent an electric bike. This last option is highly recommended if you want to integrate us in this wonderful forest and enjoy the river Eume, quality give it go and peace of the surroundings.
