spanish monestary

The Spanish Monastery (aka St. Bernard de Clairvaux Church) in North Miami is one of my favorite places. It was originally built in Spain in the 12th century, and shipped to the United States and reassembled, brick by brick, in the 1950’s. Here’s a nice photo set of the building (and here is an alternate, lower resolution but easier to use version of the same photos). More photos at the Monastery’s own web site.

    I’ve always liked that place. Where are your photos, Alesh?

    This is indeed an amazing little oddity in Miami. A friend of mine got married there. Beautiful place to have a wedding!
