  • Beautiful monastery, lovely cloister. Included in the pass that gives access to 7 attractions for 10 EUR. Particularly liked the cloister. Very good audioguide.

  • Extremely beautiful, well-kept monastery. It is worth entering and seeing the idyllic garden surrounded by two levels of cloisters, intricate decorations and sculptures, and of course the church...

  • A pleasant monastery but nothing exceptional. The main church was OK but we saw a great many that were better. The cloisters, usually a good feature of monasteries was ornate but quite small. One when passing not to seek out. More impressive lit up at night, but you can't enter then.
  • Absolutely stunning inside and out. While inside the building there is soft music playing which sets the whole mood quite nicely. There also an audioguide. The small inner garden is lovely and the arches of the patio are so intricate.
