a small group from our boat toured here and the guide was very informative and the old church and underground ruins are pretty special. the entire little village should be on your bucket list, and for at least a full day to enjoy it all.

This site seems more about shopping at the boutique and having a glass of wine than the historic cloister, which is not in good shape at all. A lot of restoration work going on at the site, but all that is left of the cloister...More

for sure worth seeing different wine production than it is usual in the area. the guide was is very knowledgeable, able to do tours in different languages. I'd recommend later tours as a smaller group is just more fun.

Went for a walk round this site which is free to enter. There is lots of work ongoing to one side is covered in scaffolding and we were there whilst a large tour party was going round which made seeing some parts difficult

Extensive restoration is being done - on what I am not sure. You must enter through the gift shop, see the cloister and go on to the “garden” which is quite bare with tables and chairs set up. Our hotel gardens are so much better...More

This is an interesting spot with nice gift shop and bar. The architecture is worth a look and enjoy the peaceful garden inside. It's right along a walking route into town so it makes an easy and quick stop.
