It is one of the most ancient and evocativa of Sorrento.
The peaceful and quiet environment, enhanced by the fourteenth century architectural elements, mixed later styles, makes this place unique and fascinating.
In the proch of crossed tuff arches, arches are alternated with ovals and resting on octagonal columns surmounted by capitals of exquisite craftsmanship, in which the ancient elements from the classical era temples have been inserted.
Built on the ruins of a seventh century monastery. St. Francis’ cloister has long been of great importance not only in the religious history of Sorrento, but also for the administrative life ofthe city. Infact, especially between the late 1400s and early 1500s, the municipal sea was housed here as well as several meetingsof the city council held.
