Home to Benedictine monks, visitors can admire the abbey’s Cistercian style characterised by its austere façade, with a mixture of Gothic and Romanesque windows and archways. An ornate interior includes the Lady Chapel, with its central Madonna figure; beautiful mosaic, marble floors; the stained glass windows of the Blessed Sacrament Chapel; and the dramatic High Altar.
