I always think of cloisters as being buried low down and in the midst of the building, but the nature of Mont St Michel perched on an island and reaching up towards the sky, led to a break with that tradition. This cloister here is at the top of the building, light and airy, a place of meditation with a clear view upwards. The two overlapping rows of pointed arches, featured above, add a feeling of grace and the obligingly blue and fluffy sky definitely added a heavenly feeling.
