Recommended for a short (10 min) sightseeing stop: unique & picturesque with great views. No nuns encountered: in fact, we were the only people there.

I visited the monastery with lots of friends. Reverence and respect was a common feeling amongst my co travellers, until I got a glimpse of the inside of one nun's cell. She saw me and she was disturbed. She lives in sheer luxury, antique furniture...More

A different unique Monastery on the top of the mountain. Why; Because it looks like a tiny village. Little houses with nice little yards or balconies.
