Cloister at Cadouin Dordogne
Width: 420 m
Height: 320 m

This is the peaceful cloister at Cadouin Abbey in the Dordogne departement of France. This was a beautiful part of the abbey and I had a stroll round while my late wife Karen had a sit down and read the guidebook, as she always did, cover to cover.

I have  done a few cloisters now and I love them because of that lovely light coming through into the outer ambulatory and  making brilliant shadows of the architecture on the floor. See my Fontenay, Carennac and Windsor castle cloisters on this site , and I think you will agree.
