Puy-en-Velay's Cathedral cloister

Recommended
Adhering to the north of the cathedral it's made up of galleries from different ages, the oldest being Romanesque. There is a remarkable Romanesque Grille which encloses the west gallery and all around the cloister runs a delicately decorated cornice illustrating in a lively fashion the bestiary of the Middle Ages. The capitulary room is adorned with a 13C fresco depicting the Crucifixion.
