Description : A double gate separates the detainees from their family.

Some detainees family don't come to visit anymore because of a too long journey to reach the prison or because they are too much ashamed. In this case, the detainees have to cope on their own.

The prison holds roughly 2,600 people, more than three times its maximum capacity of 800. It is located a few hundreds meters from the historical centre of the city.
