Saint Joseph

Monastic Guesthouse

The Sisters of the Saint Clare Monastery of Artebakarra welcome guest to come and experience the abiding presence of God with a prayer community.

Located in the hillock of Artebakarra -in full nature- the Guesthouse provides monastic hospitality to all the persons coming to our home. We have come to give the name of Saint Joseph Monastic Guesthouse, in Spanish Hospederia Monástica San José”.

The monastic guesthouse is part of the same monastery in both the spiritual and architectural sense and therefore, it is a place of prayer, silence and withdrawal allowing those who visit us the opportunity of an encounter with themselves, with God and their neighbour.

Our guests are free to attend our prayer and are welcome to joint us in the liturgical services. This experience lived day-by-day with the community creates an atmosphere of fraternity.

We try to offer to our guest an adequate attention from our spirit of simplicity although from the heart to all those who are in search of a prayerful community, an atmosphere of peace that allows them to approach the mystery of God, an atmosphere of serene harmony so necessary in a post-modern culture in which a kind of ethics of cybernetics seems that prevails.

Our guests can walk, read, and meditate, through the green areas reserved for them.

Contact with nature offers a therapeutic effect of calmness enriches and also raises the spirit up to God.
