in the backyards

600_5779-sc_wUsually backyards are closed for the public. But some public houses also have public backyards. In this case, we visited a former hospital, now a public library, that used to be part of a monastery. The library’s main entrance is right in this alleyway.

Because of its history being a monastery, you can find a large backyard equipped with a fountain and a surrounding cloister.

I was very surprised of the trees full of fruits: oranges! I’ve never seen oranges in a tree before. Although I knew, that oranges need 14 months to get ripe, I was very surprised to find so much fruits in the trees. On the other hand, I won’t expect to see orange trees in the public as street plants or in public parks.

Take care!
