A peaceful place with beautiful colonnades around the central garden. The garden is very well maintained and has some interesting horticultural solutions. Very well worth a visit.

This hidden little cloitre is fast passed. It is a green little haven in this brick town, but nothing special. You can walk straight through it between two streets in the block. Good for a 5 min visit. Free entrance.

In the mayhem of a tourist town, this is a true gem which gives instant peace a calm. The gardens are beautiful and the cloistered walkways a real change from the street outside. Very difficult not to feel instant relaxation

How many people today understand what it is to be cloistered: to be shut up in a convent or monastery, to be secluded from the wider world? At the suggestion of a friend, I ducked down a pedestrian street and up some stairs to pop...More
