I only like the soroundings of the church and the old bell tower made of stone. Nice to have picture in it having the church as the background. Still nice and peaceful.

Upstairs you can see how old the convent is and is still maintained by the parish priests. No more nuns in the convent. Just in front of the convent is the Lazi Church as well.

I understand the convent has much history in it but there was nothing much here. Maybe I just didn't appreciate how the convent was built. Some of the tourists talked to the locals manning the site but we didn't.

Once you enter the convent you will be amazed at the size, the wood floors,, the underground cistern which the friars built . Look beyond the stone walls and feel the pulse of history .

The antique edifice was quite well preserved and the old wood fascinating. This is a good spot for photography on the windows and stairs. There were school classes ongoing, but the atmosphere was still so serene.

We had a fun time taking pictures of the well-preserved structure. It is just right across the church. The locals are polite and friendly.

This will be part of any day trip I suspect and worth every minute. From historic buildings and churches to beautiful tree-lined streets to the sound of children happily playing at school - this was a great place for a walk and a drink.
