Door details

The name of this room is given by a series of tapestries weaved with silk and wool threads made in Real Fábrica de Tapices de Santa Bárbara, in the middle of the 18th Century. They represent works by Andrea Procaccini and his disciple Doménico Sani, whose subject matters are scenes that do describe settings belonging to the famous book "El Quijote", where Miguel de Cervantes' quill immortalizes the well-known gentleman from La Mancha.

At the roof, richly decorated with a Pompeian style, there is lace scarf placed at the cetre. An incredible empire-style lamp lights up the room.

Over the Luis XV style chimney made of white marble, there is a Luis XV marble clock too, with cupids made of golden bronze and a blue porcelain amphora from Sèvres.

Historically, this living room is known as the place where General Prim's widow was offered Amadeo I de Saboya's deepest sympathies, after being declared King of Spain.
