Visited the monastery just before lunch - a place of tranquillity! Beautiful church, cloisters and gardens. Sit in the courtyard and watch the monastery cats.

Regardless of its religious value, the architecture of the place is clearly Venetian, i.e. very romantic, with lush plants and a dreamy arches. You can visit the wine cellar and olive oil mill and enjoy a free tasting session. Buy the oregano, semi-sweet white wine...More
