The Western Claustral Range: Refectory and Cellar

The western claustral rante at Saint-Jean-des-Vignes survives intact, extending beyond the full length of the western alley of the great cloister and abutting the south tower of the church facade. This impressive structure consists of two stories: a vaulted, raised first floor that forms the refectory proper and, beneath it, a vaulted cellar with attached caves, and, to the south in the seventeenth century, a small meat kitchen.
