A historical monastery at a great location : It wasn't worth the detour we took, but if you are in town exploring the sites near, this monastery is a great place to stop by.

Truly Amazing : Amazing. Forget game of thrones, the history here is immense and the way this was built is astonishing. 100 percent worth a visit. It's free to enter but depending on people you might have to queue. We went early in the morning so were ok, but when we left there was a huge queue. Also a bit of walking is involved. Definately a must see!

Great Place : The sculptures and other art are set in glorious natural surroundings and inside a carefully-restored and prepared building. This is a great place to visit--if you can. I visited as part of an organized group--I am not sure it is open to the general public.
