Photographer's Note

Picture taken in the cloister of the Benedictine Monastery in Monreale.
The four sides of the square cloister (each 47 m long) are entirely surrounded by the portico, with an interrupted series of 228 small paired columns bearing capitals and pointed arches.
In a corner of the cloister there is another mini square cloister including this column-shaped fountain.

For a visual comprehension of the all architecture of this place you can look at this picture posted by Moustique. The little cloister is in the right-top corner of the big cloister.
