Lovely! This entire convent area is so beautiful with a rose garden and other flowers. Such a relaxing visit. Don't miss seeing where St. Nino is buried in the smaller older church. If you follow the trail at the back you can visit the holy spring, but it's further down than you think!
There’s like a little chapel in the entrance, I prefer it so much more than the bigger church. The visit is quite fast, the nature is amazing and they have a eatable garden in the entrance, so it’s quite interesting see the nuns pickup up the vegetables and working the parcel.
