If you are not able to book a tour through the Abbey, at least visit their Church and enjoy the architecture and paintings

I read on Tripadvisor that a person can visit the monastery gardens on Sundays (15:00). So, I checked it out and - it is true! A "padre" opened the door to the gardens for us and I was also able to go into the church...More
