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.

I just love seeing medieval architecture and when it is this well-preserved it is definitely a bonus. The town of Frejus is warm and friendly as well, especially during the holiday season when we visited.

The cloisters is right beside the Cathedral in the old town, on the Market Square and... More

You have to take a guided tour to see the cloister but it is well worth it. There are leaflets available in several languages if you are not a French speaker.
