The tag amenity=monastery denotes the site of an active monastery (or canonry, convent, comandry or hermitage), sometimes just a building, or a complex of buildings, that houses a room reserved for prayer (e.g. an oratory) as well as the domestic quarters and workplaces of monastics, whether monks or nuns, and whether living in community or alone (hermits).

How to map
