An image of one of the original long marble tables where the monks would eat.  The red-clothed tables are for modern dining.

The Refectory (dining hall) of the Monastery of Saint John is where the monks used to have their meals together during their period of communal living.  It was one of the first buildings of the monastery and was completed in 1091!  It is a 54 x 21 feet rectangular structure. Note
