I can't even begin to describe how beautiful the Cloisters Museum is. It's north of Manhattan, on 190th Street, and when you go there it feels like you're in a different country, like the south of France. The grounds are breathtaking, and the building itself houses several ancient chapels, art, and stained glass dating back to the 13th century. Come take a trip to this peaceful place with us through my photos!
I think what I love so much about this religious art and iconography is that it is both beautiful and eerie. It symbolizes both the hope and fear of generations of people who are now long gone. Like a cemetery, the Cloisters feels sacred, quiet, and dense with history.
