The Cloisters at Fort Tyron Park and Lunch
Tuesday, April 19, 2022
Enjoy a guided tour. The Met Cloisters is devoted to the art and architecture of medieval Europe. Located in Fort Tryon Park in northern Manhattan, on a spectacular four-acre lot overlooking the Hudson River, the modern museum building is not a copy of any specific medieval structure but is rather an ensemble informed by a selection of historical precedents, with a deliberate combination of ecclesiastical and secular spaces arranged in chronological order. Elements from medieval cloisters—Saint-Michel-de-Cuxa, Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert, Trie-sur-Baïse, Froville, and elements once thought to have come from Bonnefont-en-Comminges—and from other sites in Europe have been incorporated into the fabric of the building. A full course Lunch will be enjoyed at a local neighborhood restaurant.
Package includes motor coach transportation, admission, guided tour, lunch, driver's gratuity and leader.
