You pass through these cloisters if you choose to visit the Cathedral. It was a most pleasant surprise. The height of the surrounding buildings provide shade and the white of the buildings and cloisters contrasts with the grass and palms in the centre. Beautiful place.

This ' chiostro' is the connection between the duomo and the adjacent church. It is made very elegantly and really worthwhile to visit it as part of your visit to the two churches
