On the way in there are market stalls and a café type area. Unfortunately we got caught up with a coach party who completely took over the place. Whilst in the Chapel we were... More

Wow this is definitely worth visiting. It is amazing to see how the Monks still live. The Church is amazing and there is such a calm feel to the place. There is a little gift shop where you can buy souvenirs. The views around the mountain are also great.
