Nestled Between Two Rivers There’s A Monastery In North Carolina You’ll Want To Visit
Just a hop, skip, and a jump away from North Carolina’s famous Christmas Town U.S.A. is another less famous, yet just as inspiring, attraction: a monastery established in the town of Belmont (just across the river from McAdenville) in 1876. This American-Cassinese monastery in North Carolina is worthy of visit, even if you can only tour the campus – and not the buildings.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
The monastery at Belmont Abbey is located in the town of Belmont, which sits between two scenic rivers in North Carolina: the Catawba River and the South Fork Catawba River. Carve out some extra time to explore Belmont while you’re here. You can actually view portions of Crowders Mountain from places in this suburban Charlotte city. And this monastery in North Carolina is definitely worthy of visit!
