There is a turtle in the cistern that collected rainwater for the walled town - you look in at the pool and then climb some narrow steps up to the wide collecting area - wonderful views of the Lake and all around.

although it is only visible by looking through a grill at the entrance (unsure why it wasn't open) the sense of space and grandeur is still possible the architecture visible is magnificent and it was disappointing not to be able to see it closer.
