Mount St Benedict is a must- see attraction in Trinidad. The site is accessible from St. John's road between the towns of Tunapuna and St Augustine.. The drive is very steep as the monastery is halfway up the mountain of the Northern Range. The drive passes through very populated villages and the roads are narrow, but when you get there, it's well worth it. There are also minibuses that can take you up instead of driving.
The monastery is a typical church, consisting of he chapel itself, a gift shop and priest's living quarters. The view is fantastic as you see the lush mountains on one side and the spread of the island below in the other side. In addition to tourist excursions, many locals also come to the Mount to just sit and read, relax, contemplate life, and admire the view. Of course, the primary reason is the Church itself, the fabulous architecture and the place of worship. There are no restaurants or food vendors on the compound so bring your own supplies if visiting for more than a few hours
