The Augustinian Cloister of Santa Maria

Poschiavo

The old cloister, birthplace of the Augustinian sisters S.M. Presentata di Poschiavo, is a harbor of peace, quiet and contemplation, and the ideal place to escape from daily stress.

The old cloister has been renovated and turned into a place where groups, associations and educational bodies may meet for religious or cultural training. Individuals may also find the perfect environment for their spiritual quest and self-discovery. The small community of sisters allows guests to assist in their daily liturgical prayers.

    Hi, sisters. I´ve just read the article written by this couple in 2011 and I have the goosebumps. It gives me the creeps to see that I´m not the only one that suffers in this world... I´m so sorry that a child of theirs died; My husband died almost 6 years ago, and being latinamerican (he was Dutch) there is not a day that I d not remember him, specially now, February, on vacation, when I went to his land. I wish to ask you for prayer for me, Marcela, my physical and mental health, and well-being of my closest. A great hug from Argentina.
