  • Not as visually impressive as other sites in the area. Views of the river are nice. Be advised shorts are forbidden and women must wear long dresses. They have temporary skirts to wear for those who are not up to the dress code.

Like most of the monasteries we visited, it is undergoing some renovation, but the church is well worth a stop in just for the location and to visit the skulls of the two brothers inside the altar. Many locals carried out the tradition of making a wish and crawling under the altar three times with their candle, which apparently brings good luck.
