Ste. Foy--page 10 (of ten pages): Views of partial cloister and isolated capitals

A small section of the original cloister on the east side near the original chapter house

All of the capitals below are exhibited in the old refectory of the Benedictine monks. They have been identified as cloister capitals because they are all of the same light gray limestone. Various types have survived: foliate and those with animal themes as well as a variety of historiated sculptured capitals.
