Photograph of the cloisters of San Esteban in Salamanca, Spain. In the background are Gothic arches supported by baluster columns at the top, the length of which are divided by thin columns. Above these Romanesque arches line the wall with a closed balustrade below. Medallions punctuate the arches. In the foreground stands a small building supported on six pillars with a partially covered domed roof with two large stone troughs inside.
