CloistersPoint us to a cloister and were are there. Out come our cameras for the multiple of views. Many never capture the feeling of the appealing spaces. We have captured some of the moments at cloisters with our line of note cards.


Cloisters are medieval in context.

The cloister is the enclosed courtyard that is formed by the walls of the church, buildings for residence, and a walkway or covered colonnade overlooking the square.

Flowling from medieval times and primarily in Western Europe, the "age of cloisters" is between the 8th and 15th centuries.
