Sun-Sentinel/R. Justin Chan
A real monastery, built circa 1141 in Spain, winds up in Miami to be rebuilt stone by stone -- all 35,872 of them. In 1925, newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst was traveling across Europe looking for art and architectural curiosities to grace San Simeon, his California estate. Hearst came across the abandoned monastery and bought it for $1.5 million. But it wasn't until the '50s that the attraction was erected in Florida.
