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 at the main entrance but be sure to pick up the guide brochure and read it while you are there! I was so entranced, that I ended up missing some of the points of interested listed. A yoga class was just leaving as we entered the cloisters . . . what a perfect setting with the burbling fountains and gentle clinking of the miniature glass chandeliers dangling from the courtyard trees. A couple of well tended cats escorted us through the gardens and grounds which are equally manicured. Check the website for the days and times this site is open and plan at least an hour to explore.
