The Monastery is famous world wide. There are a large number of wall paintings there, depicting stories from the Bible. I could have spent the day just photographing these. We were amused to see the arrival of the ice cream van and a queue quickly formed.....of Monks anxious to get a 99!!
The first time we visited there was a van selling long trousers and shirts and blouses for those who turned up in beach clothes!! The last time we visited they had a number of Monk type gowns that you could borrow to cover your indiscretions!
It was so peaceful, I nearly joined!
