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.

We visited as part of the annual Photographic Exposition. A great time to come and see this historic building filled with wonderful pictures.

Nice little place to visit as part of the City Pass tour. Plenty of shade to take a break from the sun and there is a video playing on the second floor that provides a greater insight to the build.

It was a joy to visit these cloisters. The play of light and shade on the beautiful pillars and carvings was simply beautiful - and there were plenty of ancient and very welcome places to sit down in the heat!

A beautiful ancient cloister that allows you to travel back in time and feel what it was like to walk around these peaceful and inspiring grounds.

Feels like entering a lost world. Probably the best arcades surrounding a courtyard that I have ever seen. The view from the roof is an additional bonus.
