Tea at the Monastery! The Marianhill Monastery is located in Marianhill on the outskirts of Pinetown. The monastery was founded by Trappist monks in 1882 as a Catholic Mission and now boasts an impressive display of architecture and design. Beautiful frescos adorn the cathedral ceiling and light streams through stained glass windows.
In addition to this, the monastery is well known for its organic produce, including milk, cheese and yoghurt. You can stop at the monastery and enjoy a delicious lunch in their tea garden. The menu ranges from light snacks to heartier fare - sit in the shaded garden and relax to the monks chanting in the background.
