The fortresslike St Augustine’s Monastery sits atop a rocky perch on Bernard Rd.
This working monastery was designed by Father Jerome, the itinerant architect-cleric who blessed Cat and Long Islands with beautiful Gothic churches.
The imposing building dates from 1947 and is still used by Benedictine monks, who give guided tours that offer a fascinating glimpse of monastic life.
A college run by the monks is attached.
