  • The most remote Christian monastery in the western atmosphere. A beautiful drive along the Rio Chama after driving past the amazing Ghost Ranch area. A beautiful mass.
  • The dirt road is a bit rough but the scenery is AMAZING!! And the monastery is such an amazing piece of architecture. So glad we took the time to check out this peaceful beautiful spiritual place.
