MONTE PACIS
 

MONTE PACIS

There are just a couple of hundred hotels operating in functioning monasteries in the world. Hospitality in such institutions may be of two different levels. In some places accommodation is offered for a symbolic cost, the Rule of the Order has to be followed and only basic level of hygiene and comfort is available. Monasteries functioning in historical buildings sometimes run high-end hotels with upmarket hospitality services, cutting-edge technologies and gourmet restaurants. All this luxury is available in ancient buildings with exceptional aura and energy. Staying close to the monastic living, watching its routine activities, retreating into the peace and tranquillity of nature is a good chance to relax physically and spiritually and even feel rewarded. monte pacis svetingumo kompleksas10
The sanctuary in a remote woody place outside Kaunas was built for Camaldolese monks in the 17thcentury by the Chancellor of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania Christopher Sigismund Pac (1621–1684). The name Monte Pacis given to the monastery encompassed two meanings, namely the secluded eremitic life (the Hill of Peace) and the family name of the founders (the Hill of Paces). The hospitality complex carries the same name

MONTE PACIS

The hospitality complex was developed minding the rules of Camaldolese hermitage, orthodox Uspenia monks and Congregation of the Sisters of St. Casimir and aiming to preserve and foster historical, architectural, art and ecclesiastical heritage and traditions.

MONTE PACIS VISION

Let all guests who arrive be received as Christ (the Rule of St. Benedict, Chapter 53)

The unique complex provides exceptional catering, accommodation, conferencing, cultural, educational and recreation services at the same time proclaiming and appreciating the Camaldolese truth Salus per Silentium (SpeS), i.e. Salvation (health) through silence, also by following the orthodox Monastery and Convent Etiquette and proclaiming the motto of the Sisters of St. Casimir “God is here”. MONTE PACIS hospitality complex is a building consisting of three parts. The central part has two floors and on the sides there are one-floor wings with avant-corps at the ends. The strictly symmetrical layout of the ensemble highlights a clear and precise functional hierarchy of its separate parts and it is the sole example of baroque axial composition in Lithuania.

The southern part of the building was designated for the founders of Pažaislis Monastery. Private apartments of the Chancellor of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania Christopher Sigismund Pac and his French wife Clara Isabelle de Mailly, the maid of honour of the first Lithuanian-Polish Queen Maria Ludwika. The hall in the southern avant-corps of MONTE PACIS is called the Founders Hall and is meant for conferences, cultural events and gala parties.
