A lovely, quiet spot to meditate or pray. The Monks make a variety of wines which are for sale at the gift shop at the entrance. You can also purchase olive oil, cookies, and a few other homemade items to include honey from Latrun as well as postcards. Beautiful grounds.

We visited the place on a friday and were guided by an amazing guide. The history of the place is something you must learn from their guides, not from here. You can walk around the gardens and outside the walls you can walk by the wineyard. Quiet and enjoyable. The store offers their wine and olive oil. Very good, both.... More

The monastery is a very unique one. Monks who took vow of silence live there. They make different kinds of wines and other beverages, home made cookies, marzipan bars, truffles and some other things. There is a great path around the monastery for those who love nature and would like to have a look around the place which is very... More

A place of peace and silence, you feel calm when walking within their garden. A shop with nice local products is at the enterance. Wine is nice but burbon is top class.

Nice, quiet place not far from Tel Aviv. We've been in Latrun to a Christmas happening~ there was a classical Christmas concert in the church (it is very simple and unusual) and supper in the Abbey dining room . Before the supper Daud (the guide) told us about the history of the place, how it is organised and about life... More
