There was a disguised entrance to the basement, which had no ventilation or daylight. The temperature was between 40 and 45 degrees centigrade in summer and very cold in winter. It was very damp, the walls and floor were constantly dripping water. Stairs led to a room with a ping-pong table used by the torturers, Next door, a small guardroom. Two solitary confinement cells. One room for torture, others for infirmaries. Kitchen, washroom and showers, these with an opening in the wall through which the guards would peep at the women. There was another section for storing the 'spoils of war'. A cell called the 'lion's cage' had low partitions separating boxes of 1.60 metres by 0.60 metres. In one section there were eighteen cells, in another, twenty-three, all of them 2 metres by 1,60 metres and 3 to 3.50 metres high. Three torture rooms, each with a heavy metal table.
