I believe the reliquary is at 11:00 am every day except Thursday. Even though I am not Catholic, we stayed for the reliquary-we had no idea what it was. I am thankful we stayed because we participated in it and were so very glad we did. It is a moving experience and one I'll never forget.

I admit we only ducked in here to escape the rain, however I am so glad we did because it is a beautiful chapel. The bronzes are just top draw and there is a real sense of peace which can often be found with spiritual places. Take 5 minutes to relax and reflect before moving on to your next fine Trappist Monk Beer

Fantastic globe pulpit and amazing colourful artwork. I'm not religious so have no comment to make about the holy nature of this place but it must have struck the peasants in the middle ages dumb with it's opulence and colour.
It was so impressive it even struck the fear of god into me, even though I don't believe in him!
