The Franciscan Monastery Gardens provide a peaceful setting for quiet contemplation or for drawing and painting. Many reminders of spirituality can be found within this area. Inside the semi-enclosed corridors, plaques hang, with the Ave Maria written in numerous languages, some of which are not spoken anymore, such as Old English. On the grounds of the gardens are statues and small chapels, as well as the Stations of the Cross.
The grounds of the Franciscan Monastery Gardens are beautifully maintained. The atmosphere is contemplative, as well as scenic.
