This convent has a great inner court yard. The historical building offers great rooms. We had a large dinning room, rest room, bedroom and bathroom, well decorated, with fresh roses from the garden. The hosts were very helpful and knowledgeable about the area and the whole country. We had a wonderful time. The breakfast was great. It was quiet with nice walks to do around the convent. We stayed a week. I was a great way to visit the area.
