My husband and I drove to Timo's Restaurant in North Beach. Then we took a short drive to the Cloisters. The building was erected in Spain and then brought to the United States by William Randolph Hearst in 1925. After his death in 1952, Messrs. W. Edgemon and R. Moss purchased it for a tourist attraction. It took 19 months and almost 1.5 million dollars to put the Cloisters back together in what Time magazine called the 'world's biggest jigsaw puzzle." In 1964, the Cloisters was bought by Col. Robert Pentland, Jr. It was purchased for an Episcopal parish and is active today.
