16 Processional Path at St Andrews Cathedral, Scotland

The canons (priests) who once lived at St Andrews Cathedral had a regulated life. They ate one vegetarian meal a day and slept in wooden beds in the dormitory entered through the four lower arches. Each Sunday morning, they walked clockwise around the cloister following the processional path seen as the square foundation stones in this photo. Then they reentered the church and sprinkled holy water the altars. On the left are the twin towers of the cathedral’s east façade. On the right is St. Rule’s Tower.
