Chiostro di Monreale colonni - intaglio

About this group

In classical architecture, a colonnade denotes a long sequence of columns joined by their entablature, often free-standing, or part of a building. When in front of a building, screening the door (Latin porta), it is called a portico, when enclosing an open court, a peristyle. (Wikipedia)
