(4.7/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • On a hillside overlooking the South side of the island of Trinidad. Manager of the Guest House is very warm, we welcome you. He has more knowledge of this atelier.fr tell nature of Trinidad thing. In advance Roti had lunch with whats on the back terrace. Meet at the meal in a very delicious Curry combined with soft natural Walter, a high degree of satisfaction. Moments are not afraid of comfort of the breeze and the Hummingbird Twitter in Tokyo will escalate to exquisite serene.
