You take the tour with one of the priests of the monastery, so that you get a detailed explanation of the purpose and meaning. It's a modern monastery, beautiful in it's architecture and symbolism.

If you get a chance you should visit the Domus. Very inspiring. It is a work of art. The inside abounds with Christian artwork.

This is a remarkable place, a spiritual haven with a beautiful architecture, enthusiastic seminarians, a welcoming guide and a fantastic scenery. You must see it to understand what words cannot express. Their celebration of the feast of the Three Kings was truly memorable and heart-warming. Do not miss this place if you visit the Galilee.

We enjoyed our visit! This Christian site was built when the Pope visited in the early 2000s.

As Jews, it was interesting to learn from the private guide (supplied to us for free, in English) the cooperative view between Christian's and Jews surrounding this site/seminary and their outlook on both faiths.

It is modern, beautiful, interesting, and has a gorgeous view. I wouldn't go out of my way, but if you are nearby it's worth a short visit.
