The Cloisters Nassau, Nassau
(4.4/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
One of the oldest sights on Paradise Island, The Cloisters Nassau was built in the 14th century and shipped to the Bahamas in the 1920s. Augustinian monks in the southwest of France constructed the stunning architecture, which now sits in tropical surrounds, with flowers and classical statues at your every turn. It took two years to build the cloister after its arrival, as none of the individual pieces were labelled before they left France. The impressive structure is now complete and overlooks the Nassau Harbor-- wander through and marvel at the journey it has been on.

  • The cloisters are gorgeous, but due to the "no trespassing" sign, it seems that no one is ever visiting them. We spoke to the security and they said you just can't go past the sign at the lowest level...  more »
