Inside the Abbey of Fontevraud, the cloister forms the center of the Grand-Moûtier monastery

Inside the Abbey of Fontevraud, the cloister forms the center of the Grand-Moûtier monastery. 59 meters long, it serves all the nerve centers of the monastic life: the abbey, the chapter house, the refectory, kitchens and dormitories. The cloister is built at the beginning of the 12th century. It is rebuilt in the sixteenth century, first by the south gallery in 1519 which is covered with a vault of low height warheads.
