We were able to walk into the courtyard but that was about it. The sign outside showed the hours it was open - but the building was all closed up.

Being an artist, this was one of my favorite little spots to do some sketching out in the courtyeard. Casual, beautiful and quiet. A glass of Rose and a sketchpad.
