An oubliette is a prison cell which is only accessible from above. It is impossible to escape an oubliette without help. Prisoners are often left in oubliettes to die of starvation.

In A Feast for Crows, Jaime claims that Casterly Rock has oubliettes so small that a man cannot even sit down in one.[1]
