The Ancient Spanish Monastery is not a "venue" and we are not a business.  We are a Church. 


And that means every penny of the money you give to the Monastery goes to help preserve this architectural treasure and supports the programs we sponsor. Unlike businesses,  we don't pay stock-holders or dividends. So you are not supporting a business. 


The schedule changes constantly. We've discovered the best thing is for you to call ahead (305) 945-1461, ext. 101 and make a reservation.
