One thing I’ve learned in all my travelings through the Caribbean, is that every place is filled with amazing surprises. In fact, in my last trip to Nassau, I discovered a spot that I wasn’t expecting at all. The Cloisters, on Paradise Island; the remains of a 14th-century French monastery, surrounded by beautiful gardens.
This edifice was constructed out of stone, and is one of four to ever be removed from French soil. It was originally purchased and imported to the US by newspaper baron William Randolph Hearst and later bought by Huntington Hartford and brought to the island.
The Cloisters is the perfect spot to take pictures, though I have to admit that I couldn’t take as many photos as I wanted, because they were having a beautiful wedding in the gardens, and I didn’t want to bother. Being there as a tourist is unique experience, I can’t imagine the feeling of the newlyweds in this magical place.
This is how I visited a little piece of France in the Bahamas, a must, in your to do list.
