Cloister: Essentially, this is a covered passage joining the 34 hermitages to the church and the other conventual buildings. The great cloister measures 1900 feet (one of the longest such cloister in the world). When we add the “Little cloister” and the cloister around the court of honour, the total length is 3320 feet. The monks greet and pass each other in silence.
