Feel spiritually fulfilled or simply enjoy the view from the hillside at Mount St. Benedict Monastery, offering a pristine lookout over the town below and its surrounding forest. Established in 1912, the monastery is home to roughly twenty monks, one of the oldest communities of monks in the Caribbean. The three story tall colonial building features tall white and cream colored walls. Inside, white walls also dominate the interior. Combine a visit here with a hike along one of the many trails through the forest, located just behind the monastery.

  • Mount Saint Benedict is a must because it represents an important part of the past of the Trinidadians, this time where the monks helped their education and they were same residents. This time is more, the monks almost more, but the place is quiet with views of this part of Trinidad. More items you purchase at the store will help those who help others to do!

  • We spent an afternoon having tea at Pax Guesthouse and taking a walk up to the monastery. The views are magnificent. Most relaxing afternoon I've had in a while. A wonderful, quiet respite. 
  • Although we did not enter or tour the Monastery the views from the top of the hill overlooking POS are fabulous in the evening as the sun goes down and the lights dark. Well worth the drive.
