√Čvora Cathedral

A view from the wide flat roof surrounding the Cloisters of the Cathedral of √Čvora. If you look through the arches you can see the tombs of the bishops shown earlier on my blog.

The Cloisters were built by Bishop Dom Pedro, between 1317 and 1340. His tomb is in a funerary chapel, off to one side of the cloisters just beneath where the people are standing.

Thanks for all your recent comments, I do appreciate them.
I hope to be here more often after the end of next week.

I like this image very much. The two people at the top of the building allow one to understand how big the structure is. All the moss suggests it is a rather damp courtyard.
EJWilkins: That's why I chose this one, to give an idea of scale. I'm gla dit worked smile

You and Ginnie going down the cloisters it seems. Great picture of this place. I like how you have dealt with the angles that can cause the building to 'fall-over' otherwise.
Good shot, Ellie. I think the angle you have chosen works really well. (:o)
You're well into this cathedral, aren't you. Are you thinking of taking Holy Orders? Nice shot. Conveys the tranquil nature of the place. All the best, Dave
EJWilkins: Yes, and I've got loads more pictures of it too, but I need a change of scene so I think next Sunday I'll try to find somewhere different, and a bit closer to home. wink

REAL cloisters, Ellie, that haven't been disassembled and reassembled elsewhere! Authenticity gives this a much different feel than mine. At least this acts as a model.

I like all the little "rose windows" above the arches.

Looks like a great building to wander around. good view of the courtyard as well.
EJWilkins: It was so scary on the roof, no barriers worth mentioning, as you can see.

I'm going to have to go to this place someday Ellie - you should be employed by the Portugeuse tourist board!
EJWilkins: You would love √Čvora Paul. We found half a day not long enough to look round, which was all we had by the time we got there ... not all of us like to get up early you see wink
Es un impresionante lugar. Ese claustro seguro que nos deparar√° muy buenas im√°genes en el futuro wink

It is an impressive place. That claustro surely that will deparar√° very good images to us in the futurewink
I especially like the radiating paths in the courtyard.
Very nice and quiet place ! Well done Ellie !!
Nice view
