Eternal Rome, Italy's capital

Cloister, San Paolo

Although the church of San Paolo fuori le mura, built above the tomb of St Paul, suffered damage over many centuries and a large part of the structure was burnt in 1823, the old cloister, built between 1208 and 1235 with Cosmatesque decoration survived and has an inscription describing the importance of cloisters in the life of a monk - as a place for meditative study.
