Holy Theotokos Convent

This eight-hectare (20-acre) property, with its rolling hills, forests and two natural ponds, is home to a small community of Greek Orthodox nuns. The quiet setting fosters prayer and contemplation. The nuns follow a traditional monastic life and currently produce pure beeswax candles. Tour the convent and watch or take part in candle making.
