An impressive 900 years old, Cloitre de la Collegiale Saint Salvy combines Romanesque and Gothic architectural elements to form a pleasant patchwork of bricks and stones. In 1270, architect and artist Vidal de Malvezi rebuilt the cloister--the place of his burial. Stone capitals topped by slender columns frame the cloister's garden, where you'll find a cool, peaceful haven.
