This Convent is a sight to behold in winter with all the Snow White background. The exterior of the Convent is beautifully built and there's a view point near the Convent where one can look beyond as well.

I recommend visiting this convent after Sr Euthimus one. You'll get awesome views crossing the wood bridge. The church inside is amazing and the copper/purple dome really impressed me.
