“Places in Big Sur, CA”

The life of a Camaldolese monk centers on the seeking of Jesus Christ through the ancient but ever new monastic heritage of Saint Benedict as enriched by Saint Romuald. This life radiates outward in various rhythms, involving him in solitude and community, silence and fraternal encounter, prayer and work, study and recreation. He is dedicated to the love and praise of God in the bond of fraternal charity.
  
We invite guests to come stay with us for a private retreat with the monastic community. You can enjoy our beautiful ritual or just bask in the awe-inspiring Big Sur Coast. Also our own Fruitcakes and Date-Nut Cakes and now Holy Granola!

Look for the signs as you get closer to this place on highway 1. It's a silent retreat, so ... shhh! You can sit on the several park benches up the hill to enjoy the view. The hermitage itself is ok and I thought the fruitcake was ok - too expensive.

This Camaldolese Benedictine monastery is one of the world's most drop-dead gorgeous monasteries. It's won worldwide renown for it's panoramic ocean vistas, and it's fruitcakes!
