Patio de los pozos / las cisternas
Explanation:
Yo en cambio le esoy sacando esta mañana un rendimiento al griego clásico del instituto que es lo más ;)

kouloures son unos pozos circulares que se han encontrado en varias excavaciones (los famosos son los de Knossos) y que según quién lo cuente, se usaban como cisterna, basurero, pozo o almacén de trigo.

Similar structures, called "kouloures", were found at Knossos in a similar position. Although these were originally considered to have been water cisterns, given the problems of supplying the Palaces with water in a climate like that of Crete, it is now thought that they were used for the storage of grain. It is possible that their location on the west of the palace may have been linked to religious ceremonies since these are known to have been carried out in the West Court of Knossos.
