On the Cathedral’s south-western side the cloister was located. But due to destruction and neglect, it was completely removed in 1830. But from what I read about it, it must have been a wonderful and quiet place for contemplation, Gothic style. Some of its reliefs have been moved into the Cathedral and are now decorating the northern wall.
What is left outside still has a charm, as you can see in the pictures – old ornaments, portals, a capitel on the Cathedral’s wall, slowly eroding, and a little sculpture of an angel. Make sure to take some time to look around, everytime I was there I found more tiny details. It is also here where the funny sculptures sit on the dwarf gallery. Part of the big reliefs with scenes of Christ’s life are now inside the Cathedral at the northern aisle walls.
