The prison is in the form of a rotunda, 58 yds.
There is a pretty chapel called the " Rotunda," erected in 1852 at the lower end of the prado by President Belzu, on the spot where an attempt had been made to assassinate him.
At the east door of the rotunda is the bronze door (1858; modelled by Randolph Rogers).
A building called the Rotunda was erected for concerts, and the gardens quickly became a favourite resort of fashionable society.
This floor consists of a rotunda, and of halls and cabinets of sculpture.
