The Cloister

Il Chiostro at Chiesa di Ognissanti, Florence, Italy

The frescos are painted in the loggia;
they depict the life of St. Francis 



Sue, Amee & Teresa pose in a corner where the water damage 
from a flood clearly shows on the paintings.

The loggias are beautiful - providing shade and shelter but wide open.
