I am not much for religious stuff, and most tours of old churches are pretty much the same, so I was really shocked when this church turned out to be so impressive. The art in the Treasury/art gallery was incredible; not only in the talent...More

This is a wee bit misleading as you are not actually able to go into the monastery per se but the cloister outside. However it is still worth a visit to see the Church and chapel there.
