Free Guided Tours Of The Franciscan Monastery Gardens All Summer Long

Sorry for not posting  this earlier, but there is still plenty of time to catch a guided tour of the Franciscan Monastery gardens and grounds this summer. If you haven’t been to this neighborhood treasure, it is definitely worth a visit. While walk-ins are welcome at the Monastery from 9:00 am – 4:45 pm, the guided tour provides a wealth of information. For example, the docents explain the history and significance of the statues and shrines, the architecture of Monastery buildings, and of course, all the amazing plants, trees and flowers in the gardens. Guided tours are Saturdays at 11:00 am and 12:oo pm and Wednesdays at 11:00 am, or you can schedule a tour by calling 202-526-6800.   The Monastery is located at 1400 Quincy St. NE and tours will be given all summer. Here is a video describing the tour:
