Filming & Photo Shoots
The Monastery has been used in many Hollywood films. The current movie Rock of Ages features our Chapel as the location for Catherine Zeta-Jones' big dance number "Hit Me With Your Best Shot."
We have also been the location for network television shows, commercials, tele-novelas, and hit music videos. Inquire about our rates for filming, engagement photos, modeling, catalogue shoots and portraits for quinceñeras.

Most days private tours are available by professional tour guides. These guides are not Monastery employees, but available for private hire by advance reservation. They are available to lead tours in Spanish, French, Portguese, Russian, Polish, German, and Italian. Please call the Museum Office for more information (305) 945-1461, ext. 101.
