Ceiling of the Gilded Room
Located next to the Maxuar, the Gilded Room belongs to the Comares Palace, one of the three palaces of Palacios Nazaríes (Nasrid Palaces).
As you can see from the image, the wooden ceiling is recessed and engraved with beautiful gold-colored patterns. The room owes its name to these gold-colored decorations.
The ceiling of the Gilded Room is an excellent example of Mudéjar art, a style of decoration originated in Moorish Spain and is a blend of Islamic and Christian art created mainly by Christian artisans. There are many rooms in the Nasrid Palaces and Generalife with ceilings decorated with Mudéjar art.
Mudéjar art flourished in the Christian areas too. Built by Christian King Don Pedro of Castile, the Pedro I Palace in Real Alcazar Seville is a masterpiece of Mudéjar art and arcitecture. To build this magnificent palace, he invited artisans from Granada. Check Pedro I Palace for more info.
