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.
