Mission
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. Our Tunapuna vacation generator makes visiting Mount St. Benedict Monastery and other Tunapuna attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
