Restore your soul at this beautiful monastery shrouded in serene green trees, just 60 miles southeast of downtown Tucson. An ornate Benedictine cross on the monastery's landscaped grounds makes a striking invitation from the backdrop of Arizona's deep blue skies. Guests amble over a Japanese bridge and meditate in the prayer garden. Points of interest include an artesian pond, a 42-acre bird sanctuary, walking trails and the hushed new world majesty of the church itself. An antique shop, museum and small restaurant keep visitors occupied with a peaceful pace. A small bed and breakfast accommodates overnight stays. The Annual Spring Fiesta scheduled each May includes live music, arts and crafts, religious services and more.
