My first impression fo the quadraregular convent building was the strong symmetry between the opposing walls. It became clear that any gaze out of the building into the central courtyard was met by a mirror image, except a mirror image in which one was not able to see oneself, only the building looking directly back. By looking out onto the buiding, in perhaps an idle moment, one becomes aware that one is once again perceiving oneself within the context of the building, via a third mirror image.
