If I was religious this is where I would be. A calm and cool oasis after a good hot walk through the olive groves with the eagles flying overhead

Beautiful monastery in a peaceful setting. Obviously a cared for place with lots of plants in pots. Don't miss the Adam and Eve fountain where you can fill your water bottles with sweet spring water. Definitely worth a visit but not a detour.

Beautiful place,beautiful views. Very peaceful and serene and atmospheric. However don't try to take pictures inside the actual chapel as there is a small Nun who will remind you very forcefully that that is forbidden. Worth the visit.
