  • Very nice place in a beautiful location, we were met by a lovely Nun who showed us around and gave some details of her life there and the history of the monastery. I don't think this is supposed to be "tourist destination" but it would be nice to have a place to read about the history etc. If you want to walk to the cave go in the morning it's hot!
  • The church in the cave is along a path at the back of the Monastery. It's about 2 km walk downhill and then up hill to this delightful old church that is nestled into the hillside
