It was built in Spain and taken down stone by stone and reassembled here. Without that backdrop, the monastery would not be all that special. It is nice for an hour-long visit.

A beautiful old monastery., in the middle of a street you don't expect. Lovely gardens. A nice half day excursion. When you are finished wth the hustle and bustle head to this venue. Great little area with a good iItalian grocery store near by.

Hearst brought this over from Europe brick by brick. Here is your chance to see an authentic building and artifacts dating back to the 1100's. The only other people there were taking wedding pictures.
