The Abbey: Originally built as a teaching facility for Benedictine monks, the four-story brick building completed in 1925 sits on 200 acres in Cañon City and is a serene location for meetings, celebrations and various events. Within walking distance is the tasting room of Winery at Holy Cross Abbey.

Stop in the blacksmith shop, view work in the fields and enjoy special events and festivals through the summer and fall. 

Iron Springs Chateau: Experience true vaudeville and melodrama entertainment during a threecourse meal, and make sure to stay for the after-show singalong. The longtime landmark is located at the base of the Pikes Peak Cog Railway in Manitou Springs.
