San Estaban Cloister Salamanca Spain
Photograph - Photography And Digital Art
The church and convent of San Esteban (St Stephen) in Salamanca Spain date from 1524. According to tradition, Christopher Columbus stayed in this monastery when he came to Salamanca to defend his idea of reaching the Indies by sailing west, against the geographers of the University (it was actually an earlier building). The main cloister, the processional cloister or the "Cloister of the Kings", is the work of Brother Martin de Santiago, a member of the monastery. The lower level blends elements the Gothic and the Renaissance. The arches that border the garden are semicircular, in Renaissance style but treated as Gothic, and divided by three mullions. I found San Esteban to be more peaceful, at least equally as beautiful in its own way, and a more enjoyable place to visit in Salamanca than the main cathedral.
