  • This is a small gem in traffic crazed North Miami. Just a stone's throw from Biscayne Blvd. and all the shops/restaurants. The Spanish Monastery provides a contemplative, lovely spot. 
  • This place is something truly amazing. A complete Medieval monastery imported brick-by-brick from Spain and reassembled here in North Miami. The gardens are incredibly beautiful, and so are the cloist...  more »
  • Incredible place to take family pictures or have a wedding 😊 Very rich in history and character 👍
  • Very impressive! $10 general admission or $5 if you have a student ID. This is the oldest structure you can see in the United States. Which, for me having not been out of the US much, made this a very cool experience. Once you know the story of how this monastery got her, you will appreciate it's construction that much more. It is also still used for worship, so you may actually get the chance to see locals practicing their faith. Which made the experience even better to me.
  • Beautiful place to visit in Miami, it's so quiet, it has nice landscape to take many awesome photos!!!!
  • This is a must see place in Miami. An old monastery brought over from Europe and reassembled here. They also hold messes. It's a very tranquility place. You can see some people doing yoga in the gardens. Make sure you explore the big tree at the right side of the property and follow the little path to a stone maze on the ground.
  • This building is unbelievable, Magic... Every stone have a story to tell, the art, the age and the amazing architecture of this creation... If you appreciate the Art, you can't miss visit this place
