Beautiful drive and view and a very serene environment. When you speak to any of the priests you reflect a lot-nice place for introspection. Afternoon tea is delectable
Nice drive up the mount, you can only go up to the church as the place is also a drug rehabilitation center so some places are off limits. But if you are in time for mass, make sure you stay to listen to the monks sing, it is the best thing ever. The beauty of the place and the calibre... More
