Gouverneto Monastery reviews
A nice walk with interesting churches, chapels, a cave and a small herbor at the end of the gorge. Take enough water with you in high summer. more »
An absolutely beautiful hike that has incredible views along the way. This magnificent Monastery (the last one on the trail) is one that you won't want to miss. Wear good hiking shoes as the way is.... more »
The monastery on the beginning of the hiking route is small, but rather beautiful in conjunction with the surrounding garden. The highlight is definitely the hike down the valley, all the way to the sea. Every part of the hike is breathtaking (should the steep terrain not have done that already) and around an hour down, bit more back up. Bring good shoes and plenty of water and you'll be in for a tiring but absolutely worthwhile hike.
Amazing hike, but do not underestimate the heat and sunshine! Hiking boots and stamina recommend. Hike possible even though monastery is closed.
