The Cloister and the interior

The Cloister and the interior
Entry into the monastery is through the smallest door under the narthex, which leads straight into the portico of the ancient cloister in which a chapel has been constructed containing the remains of the Blessed Beatrice d’Este. A narrow door leads to the nuns' choir, one of the most charming of settings in Ferrara: the large room, with the choir stalls along its sides, is dominated by a large altarpiece The Flagellation by Nicolò Roselli (16th cent.), framed by a grand ancon of the same period, in sculpted gilt wood. On the opposite side three chapels open out, all decorated with precious frescoes.
