What a "Parlatorio" Looks Like

This photo was taken of a parlatorio in Rome.

This is where you speak with cloistered nuns, through a grille in the parlatorio, or speaking room.

Sometimes the sisters leave the cloister to vote or to visit a doctor or dentist.  Usually you do not see them. 

Certain extern sisters, such as the doorkeeper, can speak to workmen or to those coming for various reasons.
