Romance at the Cloisters

February 04, 2019

Celebrate your love with a romantic voyage to The Met Cloisters. Located on four beautiful acres overlooking the Hudson River in Manhattan’s North Tryon Park, the museum is worth the trip. Step back in time to the Medieval Ages while reconnecting with your loved one on what feels like a mini getaway. Wander the Romanesque Hall of the first cloister while appreciating the expertly carved details from the Monastery of St Guilhem-le-Désert near Montepellier. Explore the Langon Chapel hand-in-hand which features elements from a 12th-century church near the Bordeaux region. Impress your date by doing your homework first, or have fun discovering each fascinating fact together. Stroll the premise and find your own favorite spots. However, don’t miss the Unicorn Tapestries that were part of John D. Rockefeller’s private collection, especially “The Unicorn in Captivity." Spend the day sharing your ideas and thoughts during the most romantic month of the year.
