Photographer's Note

Second Cloister

The second Cloister of the monastery of Santa Scolastica, also known as the Gothic Cloister, was built between the end of 1200 and the beginning of 1300.
Its six-sided irregular shape derives from the union of two rectangles with different orientations: the sides adjacent to the church respect the layout of the oldest part of the monastery, while the others follow a direction that deviates to the east.
Perhaps the entrance once stood here, as seen in the fresco of "The miracle of the sickle", located in the southern gallery. It is called the Gothic Cloister due to the pointed arches, with double unhooking, which rest on sturdy pillars. In the center there is a hexagonal well with a parapet and marble columns, which once belonged to the Neronian villa.
