Most People Don’t Realize This Breathtaking Monastery Is Hiding In Small Town Arizona

Looking for a bit of peace and quiet? It’s not difficult to find in Arizona—a state with vast amounts of rural space and wilderness—but if you’re looking for a place for a stroll and a bit of spiritual inquiry, there’s no place like visiting a large church property. Today, we’re going to take a look at one place in central Arizona that is also a functioning monastery.

St. Anthony’s Monastery is located at 4784 North St. Joseph’s Way in Florence. You can find details about the monastery’s history and visiting opportunities by visiting their website, stanthonysmonastery.org.
