THE CLOISTER GARDEN: SIMPLE GARDEN
The monks developed a simple garden, that is to say a garden with medicinal plants and herbs. That is still offered to visitors today. It is one of the 5 edible gardens made available by the City. Information panels present each plant and when you can harvested it and eat it.
FROM GALLERIES TO SCULPTED CAPITALS
Under the south gallery, the brick walls are interesting to observe, they still bear the fingerprints of the men who made and baked the bricks. The Romanesque arches are twin columns capped with Roman and Gothic capitals, carved with foliage and biblical characters. The canons’ cells, located in the surrounding buildings, have given way to apartments.
THE CLOISTER OF THE SAINT-SALVI COLLEGIATE
The cloister of the Saint-Salvi Collegiate is accessible from various points: from rue Sainte-Cécile, by going through the Collegiate or via the covered path from place Saint-Salvi. In just a few steps, the lively atmosphere of the Episcopal City gives way to a little haven of peace. After the street, it really does seem like a secret garden.
