Don't miss the Library and if you have time attend the mass. It was sublime. The hungarian monks from this abbey were very important on the creation of a great school in São Paulo, Brasil (Colégio Santo Américo)
Only takes about 1 hour to do the tour and the library is amazing. The church has 3 different architecture in it.
On top of the hill and when you come to the area there is no mistaken that the abbey is what you see in the distance.
Everything is perfect: the landscape, the buildings, the food. Very well organised and family friendlly activities, great staff. In one word: amazing.If you are on a low budget: no entrance fee in the arboretum and free parking. I'd highly recommend it.
