In architecture, a cloister is a square or rectangular courtyard, completely enclosed by covered walkways often having rooms or buildings along the outside edges, and is part of a church or monastery. The edges of the covered walkways, on the garden side, often have lovely archways. This pattern is named for Isola di San Michele, the 15th century cloister in the church on Venice’s cemetery island.
