    Rendez-vous at the Cloister of la Psalette in Tours

    An elegant Renaissance building

    The Cloître de la Psalette, which means choir cloister, was given this name as one of its rooms was used for practising religious chant in the Middle Ages. The architecture of the cloister which adjoins to the Cathedral of Tours (Loire Valley) is made up of three galleries built partly in the Flamboyant style and partly in the Renaissance style, of the scriptorium, the old bookshop and of the Renaissance staircase.
