The Beautiful Met Cloisters of NYC

Oh, the treasures you will see! Indeed, the Met Cloisters is a feast for the eyes and soul! Located on the northern tip of Manhattan, overlooking the Hudson River, in Fort Tryon Park, the museum is dedicated to the art, architecture, and gardens of medieval Europe. Some of the patio gardens are dedicated to the cultivation of cooking herbs and medicinal herbs used during that period. Treasures of silver abound, such as the chalices pictured below. Out of respect for the museum, it is the only treasure image I will post. Also exhibited in the museum are wall tapestries that are magnificent beyond belief. As I looked upon them, I could only image how long it took to weave one! Included are the famous Unicorn Tapestries. As one enters the domain you immediately feel yourself step back in time. Sets of stone steps lead up into the exhibit rooms. Feast upon the treasures!
