The main monastery building, which dates from the last century, has stone floors, worn shiny with use and scrubbing, and high arched ceilings. The walls are several meters thick, providing defense against winter chill and summer heat. Prominently pictured on walls throughout are Pope John Paul II and Don Bosco, founder of the Silesian order, to which the monastery belongs.

A game can be conducted between two players, or two teams of two, three, or four. A match is started by a randomly chosen side being given the opportunity to throw a smaller ball, the jack (called a pallino, or a boccino in some areas), the side that first attempted to place the jack is given the opportunity to bowl first.
Once the first bowl has taken place, the other side has the opportunity to bowl. The teams switch off bowling and the team with the closest bocce ball to the jack wins.
