I Photographed an Abandoned Cloister in France

In this post I would like to show you a stunning abandoned cloister in France that I have photographed in 2016. The construction of the cloister was carried out in the early 14th century. Unfortunately, at the beginning of the 19th century, the cloister was destroyed by military action. However, some elements and marble columns were recovered and transported on twelve carts to the grounds it is currently standing on. The new owner, a well known France poet, rebuilt the building on the same ground his summer residence was standing on. It took three years of work to reconstruct the beautiful building with 36 arches in white and gray marble. Part of the cloister is a chapel, orangery, atrium and a forge.
