After walking past the cross and up a short hill, you will find the Meditation Garden. It is also surrounded by a block fence with a simple metal gate at the entrance. As you walk along the brick path, and over a wood bridge, a calming feeling swoops over you. In the garden, you will see a pond with fish swimming around, several statues, and enormous trees. You can cop-a-squat on the benches, but make sure that none of the various species of birds found on the grounds are in the trees above you.
A short distance from the garden is the gorgeous adobe Monastery. In the front, you will first notice the large arbor with a statue, benches and a cross inside. When you walk inside the entrance to the fence surrounding the Monastery, you will see the beautiful garden and fountain. You are allowed to walk inside of the building and get a sense of peace while sitting in the pews. It is simply stunning inside.
