ROOM 7

We arrive to room 7 crossing the door which was the palace external entrance until the fire that took place in 1372 in the bishop’s houses.

They both promoted the new Gothic-Mudejar palace, bigger than previous one. Mudejar artists were employed to raise and decorate the new palace.

These five capitals decorated the access to disappeared Saint James Church. They underlie the use of art as a didactic resource along history.
