Very secluded monastery, with great views. Tranquil place for quiet thoughts. But it has some 100 steps or so to get to. Going to the monastery is downwards. Climbing back to the exit required some effort... Definitely worth the slight effort.

Stunning and wild view of the monastery when you are looking at it as it is right down and inside the rock. From the monastery the view of the mountains around it is breathtaking. There is a parking lot outside.

Very interesting monastery hidden in the mountains. It is worth a visit while in the area. The church at the end is small but beautiful inside.
