Refectory

Recommended
The effect is mysterious; the chamber is full of light although it appears to have only two windows in the end wall. A closer look reveals that the architect introduced a row of slim niches very high up in each recess to admit light without weakening the side walls which support the wooden roof. Note the vaulted ceiling panelled in wood and the excellent acoustics.
