Water in a dry place

Each of the cloisters we visited had a well, as did most every interior courtyard. (Water supply has d been a long standing problem in Toledo, as it's basically built on a big rock. "Modern" running water didn't come to the town until 1948!)

 

This is the well in the cloister of the Monasterio de San Juan de los Reyes.
