Beautiful people, awesome architecture

What a treat!  The cloisters in the St. Sauveur Cathedral at Aix-en-Provence are a real gem.   Entry was free but French guided tour is the only way you can see it.

Couple admiring detail with the guide

The guide emphasized that these columns were each different because symmetry was not the style.  Not only were the design details and shapes of the columns different, the columns were even made with different kinds of stones.  Now I wish my French were better and I could repeat more of what was said, but it sure was incentive to listen harder.
