the Rottery

San Lorenzo de El Escorial is more than a palace, cathedral, and monastery; it is also the resting place of the kings and queens of Spain. After the death of a monarch, they are not immediately placed in the crypt. Instead, they are moved to the waiting room (or "rottery" -david goodman) where they stay for 40 years. yum.
