One of Sorrento’s most beautiful spaces, the medieval cloisters (chiostro) of the church of St Francis (chiesa di San Francesco). A harmonious and atmospheric marriage of architectural styles – two sides are lined with 14th-century crossed arches, the other two with round arches, all supported by octagonal pillars. They are often used to host exhibitions and summer concerts. Its evocative architecture, secluded tranquility and seasonal flowers create a unique and peaceful environment for contemplation and quiet, far from the hubbub of the town.
Many thanks for all the C&Cs on 'The Lonely Walk' and all the good holiday wishes (which worked as we had a lovely time and good weather too!).
