Where are we

The Convent is build on the top of one of the tree hills on which Bolsena lies. In the green and overlooking the lake, at a few hundred metres of het Church of the Eucharistic Miracle and the Basilica of S. Cristina, at a ten minute walk of the biggest vulcanic lake of Europe. Everything seems within reach: places of devotion, testimonies from antique civilization (Roman and Etruscan), nature (woods and springs).
