Nice place with nice potential of grounds , great trees and natural settings however it needs a little love , it would take you 1/2 hour to walk around this quickly or 2 hours slowly ...

Lovely cloisters nestled in the middle of north miami. We thoroughly enjoyed touring the cloisters, church and surrounding gardens. They could do with either a prerecorded tour or a proper tour with more history on how part of this Spanish Monastery was taken down and rebuilt here. The little leaflet that is provided could include a map.

I believe this is the oldest standing building in North America. The story of the Monastery is really interesting and the medieval architecture should not be missed.

The entire monastery is a treat for the whole family. If you are into Medieval anything, including architecture, then this is definitely a place to visit. It's a fun 1-2 hours of slow walking and taking in the amazing scenery and sights. Definitely bring your camera.
