Small museum which can be seen in a short amount of time. Probably the most special item is a painting of The Last Supper. To me, the beautiful cloister was the best part, as well as the pretty church across the courtyard. Worth seeing.

The host is very kind, a great artist. The garden is beautiful with more than 500 years old tree. Picture of Last Dinner worth of see.

The "museum" is a really sad atent to display art, and the gardens are so small you just don't need to walk around. The church is the only part thats looks nicer! but that you an can visit without paying (thats my recomendation)

Beautiful setting and lovely architecture. But upon going inside there wasn't much help in regards to reading about the English. Maybe worth doing on tour!

It is a walk around to the monastery from the city centre via the harbour. The inside is interesting - especially the large painting of the Last Supper. Legend has it that it was painted by a sick sailor who was left here when his...More

When compared to all the other religious stops throughout Europe I would say this is not one of the top sights. The monks must have felt the same way because, according to our tour guide, there's only one monk left here. I gave it four...More
