The Cloisters

Sicily 0367

And finally, a word about the beautiful cloisters which continue both the synthesis of architectural styles and of Christian and Muslim belief systems. Each column in the cloister is different, each tells a different story while the style of the column itself refers to earth, wind, fire or water to create a true Garden of Paradise. Sadly the garden itself is no longer in the style originally conceived.
