It is called the Grated Window in reference to the grated lining balcony on top of the southern wall, built between 1654 and 1655 to protect the nearby rooms and to be used as a corridor.

In the centre of the court is a small fountain with a recycled white marble basin, making the location both unique and traditional.

In the western wall of the court is a wide gap through which the impressive looking cellar can be seen, called the Hall of the Ship, though since the 17th century it has also been referred to as the Hall of the Nymphs owing to the statues of female figures that are on the premises.
