“A trip through time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

The sight of ancient manuscripts and old paintings was a great revelation and was like a trip through time.

It also housed an inventory of an old pharmacy.

A truly great experience.

“Cloisters lovely but otherwise a little dull”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

This won;t take up too much time. There's the old Pharmacy, still dispensing, a rather dull Museum and lovely old cloisters. Pribably not worth the 4 euros entrance

“Cloisters were so peaceful”

Loved the cloisters and the old pharmacy in particular. The holes in the walls from the war were interesting to see

“An interesting working monastery”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

Worth a quick visit - especially for catholics. Enjoy the peace and quiet and take in some history. There is an interesting exhibit of a very early apothecary establishment.

“Beautiful setting, interesting artifacts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

The monastery was an island of peace and quiet in the busy tourist town. We enjoyed seeing the many artifacts and the paintings, including the Titian.
