New Camaldoli Hermitage


Big Sur, CA

New Camaldoli Hermitage (formally called Immaculate Heart Hermitage) is a rural  Camaldolese   Benedictine   hermitage  in the  Santa Lucia Mountains  of  Big Sur ,  California.  

Approximately twenty monks live and work at the hermitage. The hermitage makes and ships its own fruitcake and date-nut cake based on a recipe developed by the monks. The proceeds help to support the hermitage. They also have begun to produce a granola product called “Holy Granola”. Retreatants are welcome and over 150,000 people have made retreats at the hermitage. Rooms for men and women are available as well as separate hermitages for longer retreats. Normally all retreats are silent and non-directed.
