This is the main feature in the central courtyard area (roped off). If you look at the stone work it is all carved with intricate patterns.

The rear exit.

The selfie brigade were out in force at this location. In the end I just got in their way as they were getting in mine. Darling the stone work has lasted longer than you will.
