  • This place has a commanding view of the valley below and is well worth a visit. The library is reminiscent of Harry Potter’s and it brought tears to my eyes. Simply breathtaking  more »
  • Only short impressions, since the location is known as a tourist destination. Astonisingly dignified within the church-cathedral-cathedral. The library is worthy of our history. Only the Turks would not have!!! Learn from the abbey possibly in it.

  • Lovely view of the town from the top. Amazing structure and we love the library. Audio guides are provided, definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.
  • Ancient monastery located on beautiful hill. I simple love visiting this ancient places as they evoke mystery in my mind. Besides that the surrounding woods provide a relaxing walk such as in the near Arboretum or the walk in the trees. After that you can reffill the energy in the neighboring restaurant with a outside terrace. Little bit posh though. Alternatively you can have food in the village on the foot of the hill
