Chiostro di Sant’Andrea

For this week’s Monochrome Madness I dived into history. This is an image I took on my visit to Genoa in 2013.

The monastery of Sant’Andrea was built at the beginning of the 12th century. It used to stand on the hill with the same name, right beside the Porta Soprano. This cloister, built in the early Gothic style, used to be a part of the complex of the church Sant’Andrea that was later destroyed. It laid abandoned in the church of San Agostino, but was brought and placed in its present location in 1022.

As usual, for more excellent entries, tomorrow you can find them over on Leanne’s blog Leanne Cole PHOTOGRAPHY.
