Cloître de la Psalette à Tours


The Cloister of la Psalette, which dates from the Middle Ages, is one of the major sites of city of Tours. It is adjacent to the cathedral and owes its name to l’ensemble vocal du chapitre (meeting held by Chamoin and religious) whose spiritual rehearsals were held in one of its rooms. The cloister is especially composed of three galleries that combine Gothic and Renaissance. It once connected the buildings of the Chapter, of which only the scriptorium and the library were kept. The latter is located beneath the west gallery and it is a vaulted room, which was completed in 1460. In the north gallery, built in 1508, a small oratory keeps track of a fresco depicting the Massacre of the Innocents.
