To answer your question:
What are the shallow vats and fountain used for in the picture with the cloisters or breezeway? Is it an old public bath, or some kind of textile dyeing facility?
It is like a public laundry, people come and wash their clothes, but I mostly see young couples making out there, when I walk by everyday.
Yes, and I agree winter is overrated...that is why I am headed to the beach this weekend.
