Was intended to lower the status of prisoners and sentenced to death, which was carried away on executions. Currently, this brick building with an inner courtyard, where formerly there were stocks. The oldest is the northern part, then added in two stages of the east and west, and the latest is the southern part of the decorative frieze of the fifteenth century.
