Usually 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.
Even this picture look like taken using an intense orange filter in front of the camera lens, I can assure, I don’t. It’s also not taken from any movie created in the 1970s.
The aisle is illuminated by orange light and I can’t say, if the walls are painted orange or not – but I think they are and ceiling and floor, too.
It’s really interesting to stand in a room illuminated in such a different, unusual way. It’s a really funny experience.
Movies like “The black hole”, “Star Trek”, “2001” and similar ones came into my mind, just because of the color. Fascinating!
