Description

This elegant Gothic-Renaissance edifice was where the canons and cathedral choir ("psalette") would meet. The three-winged cloister is backed up against the north wall of the cathedral. A graceful Renaissance spiral staircase leads to the scriptorium (1520), which leads into the library, a lovely rib vaulted room, home to temporary exhibitions.
