Mt St Benedict - Church

"Mount Saint Benedict, or the Abbey of Our Lady of Exile, is a Benedictine abbey located in north Trinidad. It was founded in October 1912, by an order of monks from Brazil, after the Order of St Benedict of Italy [1]

 

The Abbey complex consists of several buildings, among them a church, a monastery, a seminary, a yoghurt factory, a drug rehab centre, and Pax Guest House. The whole complex is situated high in the Northern Range, north of St. Augustine/Tunapuna. It is visible for miles around, with its landmark tower and distinctive red-roofed buildings."
