Salle capitulaire (chapter house)

Space in a monastère (monastery) where the monks have their daily meeting discussing the daily routine within the monastery.
Most cathédrales (cathedrals) and collégiales (collegiate churches) also have a chapter house.
The picture shows the chapter house of the abbaye (abbey) Sénanque near Gordes (Vaucluse 84).
See also salle du chapitre (synonym).
