Spent quiet hour or so in Church ( next door) and cloisters. Beautiful sculptures square and cells and chapels with art exhibits in season. Nice roof top walk too ( not to scary) . Good value and very interesting.

We just finished a tour of the Amphitheatre with an English guide and were surprised to see him arrive to give us a tour here too. It is advised to have an expert explain the eras and architectural styles of the Cloister.

Beautiful galleries and access to refectory, lovely sculptures in the galleries, a video description that tells the history well, worth the visit.

Old convents ar usually quite imnpressive, this one more than most. The cloisters are just fantastic, so harmonious and neautiful. The chapels and rooms are used for exhibitions during the photo festival and offer a superb frame for the works
