Curious facts about the site: The exterior has arcades that surround the complex but are partially hidden by trees. The upper parts of the walls around the complex are covered in paint, the lower floor of the cloister has figures depicted in the arches and walls. In the vaults over the walkways there are numerous cherubs defeating evil spirits and some even fighting with each other.
