Learn about the beautiful gardens, the friars who designed them and the history and shrines of the Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land in a garden tour led by trained volunteers of the Franciscan Monastery Garden Guild. Depending on interest, you also will get a sneak peek behind the Monastery, where we have our vegetable garden, urban beekeeping program and the Monastery has two hermitages for overnight retreats.
Tours are offered on Saturdays from April-September, at 11 a.m. and 12 noon. Meet in front of the visitor center. Tours are free; good-will offerings are welcome to support the preservation of the historic gardens.
