Cloister Capital: Medieval Construction (Detail)

Detail of an especially charming Romanesque capital depicting the church's construction workers leaning out over an unfinished tower, holding the tools of their trade. This is one of the capitals in the cloister, which were commissioned by Abbot Bégon III (1087-1107).
