Gambatesa's Old Jail - Window and Doorway

The old jail was in Via San Nicola in the former Carabinieri station in Gambatesa; this was maybe until the 1980s.  These photographs show the street door and a window of the old prison.

The upper wooden slats of the prison window are missing.  The window was designed so that from inside prisoners could only see the sky.
