A lovely place to stroll and enjoy the nature and holiness of the site. The outdoor chapel is wonderful to stop and reflect.

There are many valid points in this review and are noted. Our point with this guest is that each participant creates their own experience. For example, while someone else was out shopping, he clearly had opportunity to go visit and meditate for many hours each...More
