Outer hall of the Alcoba Real (Royal Bedroom)
Situated next to the vestibule, the Royal Bedroom has two halls, outer and inner. The image shows part of the outer hall, including the ceiling and arched door. The Layout of the Pedro I Palace page shows its location (section 2) within the Pedro I Palace.
Covering the ceiling is a beautiful piece of artwork in wood and is an excellent example of Mudéjar art, a style of decoration originated in Moorish Spain and is a fusion of Islamic and Christian art. As you can see, this exquisitely decorated artwork contains gold inlaid shapes (medallions and polygons), with beautiful geometrical patterns interlaced around them.
The Pedro I Palace itself is known as the Mudéjar Palace because the original palace was built and decorated with the help of Mudéjar artisans from Granada who were involved in building the Alhambra palaces.
