I was reading about how much noise there was here. We went in October and it was quite peaceful. This is in the mountains so the journey there is spectacular and you can go to some lovely places nearby. In the complex there is a museum (extra payment but worth it - only 3 euros), the amazing church, a video... More

We visited here as part of a coach tour of the area, the road up the side of the mountain gave some great views. The monastery it self was very busy and crowded with market traders in the court yard. It would appear that the place has become very commercialised with more emphasis on this rather than what the visit... More

Exciting car ride up to the site in the mountains. Go early or late ie. not when the coaches are en route. Large elegant buildings, more formal than we had expected. The children's choir sang very well, but it is 'choir' music, not cathedral type music. The walk up the hill has great views and was peaceful and shady in... More

This place is set high up in the mountains and does project an air of peace. The church and museum areas, together with the art collection are well worth seeing. In addition there is a meandering garden that whilst not at it's best when we went it does have huge potential. Nice café on site and ticket staff were very... More

The monastery and grounds were well worth the visit. We enjoyed the botanic gardens laid out on the hillside above the monastery, and also the walk to the viewpoint on the hill above. The main courtyard and basilica were had some interesting features. There are a number of cafes and restaurants - the one in the main courtyard being popular... More

This place has it all. We enjoyed the film- very well done and then a walk around the basilica. It is well worth listening to the children's choir which has been singing since 1500s I think and there is more of a service for the religious too. The art gallery thee is one of the best on the island and... More

If you do monasteries then this may well suit you. We don't but this was on a organised coach trip. The buildings have a quite grandness about them. All the church material struck me as having dark broodiness about them but many fellow visitors found it all moving and good stuff. Tips then - walk around. There as a path... More

A lovely sanctuary in the mountains. The peace and quiet helps you to recover from the drive up! The choir is not to be missed, though check performance times as our guide book gave the wrong time. The pool is worth paying the 2 euro entrance fee as it allows you to cool down and make the day last. We... More

Recommend by locals as a must see. The carpark is over priced - 6€. The toilets were dreadful, no soap or paper and the bins were overflowing with nappies etc and floors dirty. In the courtyard by the shops etc all the litter bins were overflowing with rubbish which was encouraging flies and it really was not pleasant for a... More
