With beautiful embellishments and lush surroundings, this monastery lacks the austere, sparse quality usually associate with asceticism.
Located in the Valley of the Cross, this 11th century monastery contains a special room marking the spot where the sacred tree used to fashion Jesus’ cross once grew. Paintings illustrating New Testament stories adorn the walls, lending the building a grandeur more befitting a castle than a monastery.
