  • A gorgeous place and perfectly maintained! To visit. The visit of the monastery is free of charge, while the Church may enter without a ticket. I recommend a visit of the entire complex. In addition to the frescoes and other interesting statues and objects of the Church, the convent you can see the evolution of the same through time, old furnishings, ways of building, ex-votos, statues ... Truly a magnificent site.

  • In this secluded spot and inviting, the tour allowed us to appreciate both the silent and secluded life of those who lived in the convent, the other a series of frescoes that, for us Italians, are a rarity for historical reasons.

  • Since there were only six people a leadership and any other interested parties appeared at the time of my visit, I had denied the leadership and I can't judge accordingly also. Visiting the leaderless, you can visit the Church of the monastery and the Museum, where you can learn much about the history of the monastery of course. While I believe that one in case a real interest previously read the very informative site (or flown at least) should! In many rooms sketches and panels explain how the relevant part of the building was used and how it was used. Extremely interesting, I find the Interior redesigns at the donjon. Here can be seen in detail in some places, like from a fortified tower with stone walls is a residential tower with wood-beamed rooms. Frescoes and church art lovers get some real historical treasures to see, which indicate, why it is to a UNESCO world cultural heritage. Really is it but only in a leadership or halt in the self-study. The notion that some frescoes are 1200 years old, can be a sheer thrill at the sight. Another argument for a visit is the drive by the way. True to the motto "The journey is the reward" is recommended by the beautiful National Park and Val Müstair towards the monastery alone the journey by bus or car from Zernez and is rounded off by a visit to monastery. In the shop, you can buy some crafts and delicious Selbstgebranntes - such as in monasteries common -. I will come back again - in hope of a lead. Without leadership, it sure is not for everyone.
