Nunnery Quadrangle with Ballcourt in Midground [June 12, 2004]

"The principal courts display rectangular design, achieved by unconnected buildings. There is mirror symmetry of left and right both in the courtyards and in each of the component buildings. Corner exits are lightly marked on the south side. The platform level rises by several terraces from south to north, and the north range forms a closed rear wall to the court."
