This is one of the largest monasteries in Europe. It's history goes back to the middle ages when it also served as,a fortress. Unfortunately there are now only 10-12 monks living there. I believe they occasionally rent out rooms there. It's well worth a visit.

Nice tour and the monasteries were beautiful. Our guide was very nice but her driving was not on the safe side. She sped and passed cars in a reckless way. We were relieved to finally return back to our hotel.
