It’s not hard to imagine why they served as peaceful sanctuaries for monks in monasteries. I had such a pleasurable experience admiring the plants and architectural details, wondering if centuries ago people were doing the same. The setting of the museum is gorgeous as well- perched atop a hill overlooking the Hudson River. Places like these are so captivating because they are alive with nature and history.
