The cloister

cloisters nassau

Located on Paradise Island, the cloister is a 14th century structure built in France by Augustinian monks, imported in the 1920s to the United States by the then Press Baron William Randolph Hearst, and finally moved in the 1960s stone by stone to Nassau. It is one of only four cloisters that have been moved from France.


It is composed of magnificent stone columns and arches, stone statues and a fountain. With its magnificent gardens in the style of the gardens of Versailles, and its breathtaking view of the port of Nassau, Le Cloître is a place of serenity and romanticism to visit.

You must have a car or take a cab to reach Le Cloître from Nassau.
