This is a nice place to get known of some of the history of the convent and the boarding school. The guided tour of the chapel is very nice. The guide gives you all little details. We liked it very much

On the day we visited, our English speaking guide could hardly speak English. It is worth visiting the chapel and not expensive but if you can attend the church service, I would do it that way. The guided tour was a disaster.
