Entrance to the Cloisters
- Description: View of the formal gardens and entrance into the cloisters. The Monastery was built in Sacramenia, in the Province of Segovia, Spain, during 1133-1141. Cisterian monks occupied the monastery for 700 years until it was sold and abandoned. William Randolph Hearst, the wealthy owner of several newspapers in the U.S., later bought the monastery in 1925 and had it dismantled and brought to America.
