The history of the Ancient Spanish Monastery dates back to 1133 AD in Spain, inhabited by monks for nearly 700 years. William Randolph Hearst purchased the buildings in the mid-1920s and had them shipped to the United States in pieces, though they sat in a Brooklyn warehouse for decades. Fortunately, wealthy entrepreneurs later purchased the property and opened it as a tourist attraction, which now also serves as an active bilingual congregation.
