Golden Room - Alhambra

Brief description of the monument

Named for the Mudejar repainting of its coffered ceiling, the Golden Room was ordered to be built by Mohamed V and belongs to the Comares Palace. At its entrance we find a porch of three arches on columns, with marble capitals of the twelfth century. On the left, a small arch communicates with the Mexuar and, in the background, there is another arch decorated with mocharabs, lattices and flanked by two other small ones, which links to a small room, covered with bow tie with gothic paintings, the shield of the Catholic Monarchs and their emblems. On the front wall of the room, we find a balcony divided by a column with a Christian capital under a moorish frieze. The capital is decorated with the same royal emblems.
