When you need a break from the everyday hustle and bustle of city life check out The Mt St Sepulchre Franciscan Monastery. Hidden away in Brookland (northeast D.C.), it’s ” The most impressive DC site you’ve probably never head of “. This expansive garden welcomes visitors (believers and non believers alike) to come, stroll, reflect, and admire its hidden sculptures, prayer gardens, and trials. You’ll even encounter various Holy Land artifacts and eerie replicas of tombs, as well as a peaceful underground grotto. Not to mention there’s adorable chipmunks entertaining themselves among the flower beds.
This is the perfect place to visit for some quiet time , or to enjoy a book on a nice day.
