as a devout Catholic I could not pass up the chance to visit the church and monastery of St Francis. It is not excessive in its grandeur. I found the mosaic quite interesting coupled with the fact that the church was built on a previous cultic edifice site was intriguing. While it may not appeal to the young and restless, its a great serene monastery when you want to step away from the local tourist attractions.
very good!!!
