  • While Miami's art Deco city, here it is immersed in another world came also and contrasting with the rest of the surrounding architecture. This nevertheless worth the visit to discover this former monastery medieval, the beginning of the xx century, came from Spain, bought and rebuilt brick by brick on-site. Pictures can be taken in the grounds and courtyard. Many marriages (Hispano-cubains) often take place in the gardens adjoining the cloister. This is the oldest building located to the East of the Atlantic. In addition to the monastery a stroll in the gardens will delight fans.

  • Beautiful little church,Well kept garden. Perfect wedding venue with a touch of history. Offers services in multiple languages. 
  • Planning a site visit as directed on the website I sent several emails on various dates in the visitation day inquiring about 23 December. Never responded. After more than a 30 km in 8 people, 2 cars and 9 hours of flight in the back there and saw a "closed for Christmas". Disappointment! Biggest surprise was, when you get home, start getting emails asking them to events. Only serve to make a fool of yourself and fatten up your mailing list.

  • 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
