This is a very unique place to visit. Everyone wonders how Monks live - this is your chance. This is a gorgeous facility located in a very rual and scenic area. The monestary is HUGE (three floors I believe). They do talk! :-) They will give a tour of the facility and instruct you where talking is/isn't allowed. They have a small gift shop of unique items - especially postage stamps! They also make their own carmels there and they are to die for! You can't go there without buying some carmels.

If you are doing a historical trip around Iowa. This would be a good place to start. Dubuque has many different places to visit. This is one that you would not even think about. The monks will give you a tour and tell you about the history of the Abbey. Do not forget to try the carmels. They are awesome!

If you get the chance, visit this monastery. The monks here will give you a tour of the abbey. They have postcards and postage stamps for sale from all over the world that are unused. The postcards and stamps are just awesome. The monks are extremely friendly and nice. They will tell you about the history if you want to listen.

The caramels they make here are really good. The monks support themselves by farming and making wooden caskets and urns. This is old-world craftsmanship. They are beautiful pieces of work.
