“Peaceful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

The monastery was very peaceful and beautiful. Walking through the Cloister I felt like I was touring a church in Europe. It takes about 1.5 - 2 hrs to experience the building and gardens. I want to visit again and soak up more of the peace that swirls in the breeze under the arches.

“It's ok.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

I would recommend it only if you're near by and have some time to spare otherwise don't waste your time. The abbey has a well kept garden, some statues and an interesting architecture and that's it.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

It was amazing to see the architecture in this old building. Nice gardens and some very interesting statues. Was worth the small admission price.

“Only in South Florida”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

This is an accidental missed item from W. R. Hearst's relentless collecting. The website has details, which should pique anybody's interest. Tucked away in a slightly downscale semi-industrial area in northern Miami this would not be an automatic choice for tourists.

Missing it would be a mistake. The restoration is reasonably well done and the visit is a refreshing change from the ambiance elsewhere in South Florida. It si definitely worth a visit.
