This is a three-storey, 13 metre high building which houses many chambers and tunnels – many of them underground. There are no windows or doors (other than the main entrance) but the whole complex was so well-designed that there is virtually no mustiness. A 4 metre high stone dagger can be found in the heart of the building. Accommodation Hotel Meals B
