We are located in the Renaissance chapel promoted in the middle of 16th century by Archbishop Hernando of Aragon, King Ferdinand the Catholic’s grandson and last archbishop in Zaragoza from Royal Family. This space moves us to Modern Age, when this palace served as a residence for kings during long periods, such as Philip II and Philip IV, in 16th and 17th centuries respectively.
This chapel replaced in functions the chapel commissioned by Archbishop Dalmau de Mur, partially seen in room 2.
At present, this space is referred as “Identitas Room” and shows a permanent exhibition about how history has forged the identity in this territory. Information and images on boards underlie key landmarks and characters in Zaragoza history since it was an Iberian town, called Salduie, 2000 years ago.
Exhibition is completed with an audio-visual named “Strength of a character”, which won the Golden Dolphin in Cannes Corporate Media & TV Awards Event film in 2016, and “Inmortal”, which won the Silver Dauphin and the Black Dolphin at the Cannes Festival 2018, and the Silver Medal to best documentary at the New York Film Festival in 2019.
