    Beautiful cloistered monastery well cared for, you can visit with the guide that explains all the different phases of construction of the monastery and the life of cloistered nuns. The Church which is the oldest part is wonderful Carolingian frescoes that are covered by newer Romanesque frescoes reappeared. Recommended.

    I have visited the monastery in August. Necessarily take the lead, you learns a lot and you get to hear also anecdotes from the life of the monastery. The Church, which is under UNESCO World Heritage is impressive and you can literally feel the history.

    in the monastery endowed by him - he is a monumental statue in the Church. In the impressive monastery church - parish church at the same time also of Müstair - unique Carolingian and Romanesque wall paintings can be seen. The Church can be - visited without admission free parking opposite the monastery. A 90-minute guided tour through a part of the monastery is very interesting and informative. With their in-depth knowledge, pictorial narratives, and lively explanations, our guide showed us the Church, the Plantaturm Museum and others to see a functioning table organ from the 17 century cloister, refectory, Baroque Zelle...und. An impressive place which is well worth a visit.

  • Great beautiful monastery with unique ancestral paintings. We have the entire monastery of within views. In the courtyard were the nuns to work with the garden. The monastery is still partly inhabited. An absolute must.
