Tyburn Monasterio Puerta del Cielo, Vilcabamba, Ecuador

Monasterio Puerta del Cielo

In answer to the urgent plea of the Franciscan Bishop of Loja, Ecuador, MONASTERIO PUERTA DEL CIELO was opened in 2002 as a Gate of Heavenly intercession.  The Bishop wanted to have a contemplative community praying for the priests of his diocese and helping the population to find a more contemplative and prayerful way of Christian life.  The monastery is situated high in the Andes of Ecuador near a little village called Vilcabamba, 1,565 metres above sea level.
