Photographer's Note

A view of part of the cloister adjacent to the Collegiate Church in Saint-Émilion.

The cloister dating from the fourteenth century forms a square with sides of thirty meters whose galleries are covered with a wood framework. They are supported by arches supported by repeating columns, most of which have been restored. The groups of columns at the four corners of the gallery are topped with decorated capitals.

Of the first cloister built in the Romanesque era, only the walls and openings to the east and south survive, the rest of the monument having been rebuilt in the Gothic period.
