For me a courtyard is enclosed by a building, or more than one building.
It can even be inside a building. They are not intended for lots of
through pedestrian traffic but as an place to relax, or a view to enjoy.
See cloister too. Some have arcades or colonnades around them to take
pedestrian traffic away .. or provide a shaded resting place to view them.
In some cultures they are used to provide a privet space for a family
home, the homes' external walls provide a barrier to the outside, while
an inside courtyard provides air and light to the house as well as a
place to relax. Spain. Morocco are nice to visit.
