This 14th Century French stone monastery was brought over brick by brick to Paradise Island during the 1920s by newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst. Years later, grocery-store heir Huntington Hartford had the site rebuilt at the current location presiding over Nassau Harbour. Today, many couples take their nuptial vows at this historic Old World venue. The site is now owned by the Ocean Club but all visitors are welcome to visit and enjoy free of charge.

Location:  Paradise Island Drive, Ocean Club
