The cloisters had a small admission charge, well worth it to view the setting, well maintained and very educational.

The church was gorgeous but the cloister is a knockout. Sculpture everywhere, recently cleaned, and so peaceful. Medieval culture fans will go nuts.

If you love colonnades you will not find a more delicately touching one than this. The expressions on the faces of the capital carving alone worth the visit, and then there are the vaulted ceilings and the roof! Don't miss this place.

A really nice calm feeling as we walked around the cloister and up on to the roof area. Amazing tapestries hanging in the hall.

If a travelling exhibition is here, by all means go. Otherwise it is similar to other cloisters found around Europe.

some good carvings on the statues in the courtyard, not a lot to see otherwise. There was a modern photograph exhibition on when we were there and the Lenin one was facinating

Worth stopping and taking a look, has to compete with the Amphitheater and other historic monuments but worth the time to explore

Ancient cloister with additional exhibits and housing part of the annual photography festival. The preserved architecture is unexpected and a delight. You approach through an unconvincing portal into quite a dismal courtyard before ascending stairs to find the beauty hidden beyond. Perseverance is well rewarded.
