The floor (yes, I took a picture of it.)

Part of the wall where some of the original vegetation has started growing back. Some of the flowers were thought to be extinct, but then they cleared the original flooring out of one of the rooms (the floor was made of layered grass), tossed it outside by the wall, and then forgot about it until a botanist happened to visit and went crazy with excitement.

The Wall. Whee.

Just under where the roof would have sat, looking down. Since the original roof was gone, the restoration process put in a frosted roof to allow natural light into the building.

Looking out the window at the remnants of either an old monastery or nunnery. I forget which. You can see some of the ruins of the old church in the background.

The outer defenses look very short from this perspective.

One side is not walled, as it is directly flanked by the river. Apparently the river used to be higher.

The uneven stairs….
