There's a full explanation of how to use zijn/liggen/staan/zitten here and even just based off the explanation of what to use when talking about buildings, I would say "liggen" is perfectly fine. I would even go as far as to say that "liggen" would be better for a prison (at least for the image of a prison I have!)
