Go prepared to be totally blown away with the workmanship, attention to detail, and the dedication of the clergy working and living there. A real 'gem' in the desert - an oasis - literally!

A very beautiful and relaxing visit. Be sure to know of the appropriate dress to conform to their beliefs. Loaner clothing available. Very nice place and very pleasant people. Amazing work that they have done.

This is worth a visit. The Monastery is orthodox and women will need to be in scarves and frocks that cover arms and legs (they provide). The grounds are beautiful and the artwork and iconography is something you do not expect to see in Central Arizona. Definitely worth the visit.

Beautiful grounds and sights! Make sure research website beforehand about the dress code. I thought I could get away with wearing pants but when I got there they gave me a skirt to put over my pants. It was sweltering but thank goodness the grounds had lots of shade and the odd fountain to cool off.
