Photographer's Note

This gallery which is located in the Mont-Saint-Michel Abbey, provided communication between the various other buildings and was a place of prayer and meditation. Processions were held here during religious festivals.

The cloister is situated at the top of a building known as the Merveille built at the beginning of the 13th century. It gives access to the refectory, kitchen, church, dormitory, cartulary and the various stairways. To the west, central bay, looking out over the sea, was to have given access to the chapter house that was never built.

The galleries of the cloister have been constructed to make them light in weight. A double row of small columns, slightly out of line, creates ever changing views.
