The peaceful monastery at the top of the hill, the silence of the hill, the cool mountain air and the green landscape are all fascinating. This is a renowned Christian pilgrim centre where hundreds of devotees from far and near converge during the holy week and after to climb the hill carrying wooden crosses.
