When I read about these ancient structures built between 1133-1144 that is now standing in Miami, I was quite intrigued! Columbus did not even discover the "new world" till the 16th century and how is it possible that a 12th century structures are in Miami? Perplexed as I was, I made sure that visiting this intriguing place was our utmost... More

An authentic European monastery transported to Miami. It is small but very inspirational. The grounds are beautiful and they sell jellies and other natural products made by the Monks.

An oasis in the heat and busy-ness of Miami. It is not a very large place, but worth the drive for some quiet time. When we visited, there was a funeral service being held in the chapel, but it was nice to see an operational monastery rather than just a historical edifice. The gardens are also very pretty and well... More

This was a stopover to burn about an hour before heading to the airport. While I agree that the buildings have a great story, and thus a great allure, don't come thinking you'll see much more than buildings and a few artifacts. The building has historical significance but contextually it is strange to have it plopped down in the middle... More

Get there as soon as it opens. There will be no people there and the light is good on illuminating two stained glass windows on the side gallery opposite where you come in. Exposure is tricky so watch your histogram and shoot in manual to catch full dynamic range. If the wind is not blowing try some shots of the... More

The history of this ancient monastery transported from Spain to this out of the way spot in Miami is worth investigating on its own . . . but I recommend taking a side-trip to this serene spot to learn of its travels and re-assembly while walking through it. In addition to artifacts on display, there is a video run periodically... More

This was our first attraction in Miami and it was wonderful. A very quiet, lovely place with lots to see. I enjoyed the stonework cloisters, all original, the gardens, the lovely large illuminated music manuscript, some original furnishings. The little chapel which is still in service as an Episcopal church had a lovely feeling to it. It was well worth... More
