The monastery is very beautiful, well maintained. It is remarkable that preserved the ancient buildings that transmit through the generations the spirit of the ancient city.
The Cathedral inside is plastered, painted, unfortunately, lost.
Parking at the gate.
On-site to photograph, but inside the Cathedral it is impossible.

Unfortunately the small perimeter of the monastery. Came to this place when work was done, and the builders went. However I understand it is necessary to raise the Church. However the place is quiet and the view from the mountain at the entrance to the monastery is impressive. In General, on-site clean, well maintained, and beautiful.
