Are we there yet? Oh no, after the first gate there is a second gate...

Piece of cake for King Kong.

I should have done that earlier.

Yay! This is the inner courtyard. I'm finally there!

It is very wet up here. It has been raining most of the day.

That courtyard is really big! And look, they have brought some trees in.

Finally the rain has stopped. The palace looks much prettier when dry.

There is another gate in that back wing. Let's see where that will take us.

Walking through, we reached another courtyard behind the palace. It is surrounded by lower buildings that used to be stables, barns and workshops and such.

The round building in the middle covers the deep well. It contains some machinery to pull the water up - some poor horses or oxen had to do the work.

It also prevents that innocent passers-by stumble and fall into that scary deep hole.
