Descending the hill, passing a tight bend, the monastery's garden opens on the valley left of the road.
The trees in blossom looked absolutely fantastic.
If you stop a second to admire the wonderful view you can even see the towers of the new church through the white flowers of the fruit trees.
Near the old church, up on the hill, is the monastery's cemetery.
Stone and wood crosses bearing the name of the deceased are spread among tall trees.
