The Spanish Monastery was originally built in Sacramenia, Segovia Province, Spain between 1133 and 1141. In 1925, William Randolph Hearst purchased the cloisters and the outbuildings to have them shipped over to his estate, San Simeon in California. The stones were packed in hay for shipment in over 11,000 wooden crates. When they reached the USA the crates were quarantined due to an outbreak of Hoof and Mouth disease in Segovia. After burning the disease infested hay the stones were not placed back in the properly identified crates and became "The Worlds Largest Jigsaw Puzzle" After Hearst's death in 1952, the cloisters were acquired from North Miami Beach by the Episcopal Diocese of South Florida in 1964.
