CUARTO DORADO

Aucun commentaire
The Cuarto Dorado (or Golden Room) is the second place you will visit in your tour of the Alhambra, right after the Mexuar. You actually enter a small courtyard, with a fountain in the middle, where the sultan received its allies in the 14th century.

On the north side is the impressive facade of the proper "Golden Room" whose decoration was ordained by the sultan Muhammad V.





However, the place owes its name to the beautiful woodword ceiling in the south-side chamber, which is a work of the Catholic monarchs after the conquest.
