It is a very small 'monastery', well maintained and with an interesting history. It is well worth the visit, however. It feels like a medieval place with bare walls and rustic decorations, and there is a garden with many places to take pictures. PS: tiny...More

St. Bernard land preserve has lots on the property to see and visit. it's so beautiful, it's a rare Spanish National Monument so much history from the beginning around the 1200's to the 1920s to its sale in the 60's and its current day condition.

A beautiful landscape and interesting history all in one. Bring your camera for scenic photo ops. We passed by the chapel where they were about to start service and the priestess was so welcoming that we joined in. And it's not even our religion!
