“Franciscan Monastery”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

The monastery was peaceful and serene. The garden was lovely. The old pharmacy was very interesting with some old jars and pots on display. The monastery has had a pharmacy in operation since 1317.

“You can see only if you pay”
Reviewed 5 July 2012

I thought that it was very "scammish" as there was no ticket booth, just a gentleman sitting at a small desk and selling tickets. There was no official entry, lines or posted information. He just stopped you and said you had to pay. Very dissapointed.

Reviewed 4 July 2012

Well worth going to and wandering the cloisters. It does not take long but it is educational, relaxing and interesting.
