The Round Church at the Convent of Christ in Tomar at close range

In previous photos the Round Church in Tomar or Charola as it is widely known, appeared at a certain distance. I took those photos from the garden outside the Convent of Christ but I also wanted to show this magnificent monument at a close range. So in the first and second photos you can see the staircase that leads to the entrance of the Charola, and on the third it is still the Round Church but from another angle and already inside one of the cloisters, which as you may know, is a courtyard inside a convent or monastery.
