 escorial
 爐渣堆

From: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)

 Es·co·ri·al prop. n.  A palace and mausoleum of the kings of Spain, being a vast and wonderful structure about twenty-five miles northwest of Madrid; called also escurial.  It was erected in 1563-1584 and contains a monastery.
 Note:The ground plan is said to be in the form of a gridiron, the structure being designed in honor of St. Lawrence, who suffered martyrdom by being broiled on a gridiron; but the resemblance is very slight. It is nearly square, inclosing several courts, and has a projecting mass which stands for the handle.
