FREE GUIDED TOUR WITH PAID ADMISSION ON SATURDAYS AND SUNDAYS AT 1:00 PM
The Monastery, Offices, Gift Shop and Church of St. Bernard are all closed due to the Corona Virus.
Welcome and thank you for visiting The Ancient Spanish Monastery online. We hope that our website highlights the wide variety of activities, worship, classes, tours, concerts, and services available. Please feel free to read more about us on this site or come for a visit. We would love to greet you and share with you our love for this unique and amazing place and the community that calls it home.
We think of our sacred space as a gift—something bequeathed to us by our forebears but a gift we know we are called to share with others. Our members and visitors come from the whole Miami-Dade metropolitan area, from other parts of the country, and as tourists and pilgrims from around the world.
We practice what St. Benedict taught his monks: “All who present themselves are to be welcomed.”
- Rule of Benedict 53:1
The Gardens and Chapel of the Ancient Spanish Monastery offer a traditional setting for your most sacred celebration.
The Monastery, Gift Shop and Church of St. Bernard are all closed due to the Corona Virus.
While these times are unpre-cedented and circumstances are fluid, we know this is temporary. We are inspired to see our people and community come together.
Please take care of yourself, your families and the ones you love. We look forward to seeing you at the Monastery soon.
