While in Canon City this weekend check out the Fremont County area and come back to go ATVing, ride the Zip Line at Royal Gorge and shop for antiques. You can even search for fossils in Garden Park or hunt for ghosts at The Abbey and afterwards do a wine tasting to calm your nerves at The Abbey Winery. If you are adventurous try White Water Rafting through the Gorge or take the train throught the Gorge for a new perspective. 

About theabbeycc

This Tudor Gothic styled building was a former Catholic Monastery for Monks in the Order of St. Benedict from 1924-2005. The monks have since joined other Monasteries in different locations throughout the country. The Monastery and Historic Abbey Campus is now privately owned and is enhancing the 200 acres to preserve the beauty and history of this Cañon City, Colorado Landmark! Some of the buildings located on this campus are rented out to various individuals, groups and organizations. The Abbey Business, Events Coordinators, Wedding Coordinator Offices, as well as, the Parlor, Chapel, and the Brides and Groomsmen Rooms are located on the 1st floor of the Monastery. Abandon the frantic pace and come to a place of beauty and serenity. Take a step back in history of hundreds of former Monks and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of the former Chapel during your visit here. The Parlor located in the southwestern corner of the Monastery was used by the monks as a waking parlor for those that passed away from this congregation. The historic cemetery for the monks is located just a short walk north of the Events Center.
