Rendez-vous at the Cloître de la Cathédrale de Fréjus Cloître de la cathédrale de Fréjus 83600 Fréjus fr

A well constructed Roman cloister situated to the back of the Cathedral sheltering an exceptional 5th century baptistery

The Episcopal buildings of Fréjus in Provence comprise the 5th century baptistery, the cathedral, the cloister and the former Episcopal palace, which is surrounded by medieval premises.

This complex looms at the place of the antique city once founded by Julius Ceasar in 49 BC in the heart of today’s pedestrian town centre. The cloister’s galleries on two levels are covered by a joisting which is decorated with paintings of a bestiary dating from mid-14th century.

The richness and the diversity of these designs is unique in Provence.
