Location

A jewel in the middle of the Mediterranean

The center has been visited many times by a spiritual guide, the Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, so it is a very blessed place. It is located in the middle of the island, surrounded by a forest of oaks, wild olive trees, and pines; together with the pure air and the natural beauty of the landscape, it highlights the clarity of its nights when in the serene and cloud-free sky, you can contemplate the peaceful beauty of the stars and the moon.

Whether you are looking for a few days of tranquility to reconnect with yourself or to deepen your practice of meditation and modern Buddhism, the International Retreat Centre is an ideal place. It offers personalized retreats for individuals and national and international group retreats. Every year, international teachers from other centers are invited to come and lead a retreat at the center.
