  • No matter what your faith or even if you are non denominational this mission is truly a natural and man made wonder. Having being born in Italy and having seen so many churches, religious architecture,monasteries, convents, I must say I was impressed with all its art, natural art, and man made wonders from so long ago. It was peaceful and tranquil. I enjoyed it very much and would go back many times if I lived closer.
  • A living museum and place for reflection. Anyone can visit and walk the grounds, no religious background is needed for the history lesson contained on the grounds. Artwork and architecture are on display to study and appreciate. You can see inside the rooms and feel the history that surrounds you. A worthwhile stop if in the area.
