This fragment belongs to a Gothic-Mudejar window made by carved plaster from the palace extension ordered by King Peter IV “the Ceremonious” and archbishop Lope Fernández de Luna, after the fire that took place in 1372. In origin this window was polychrome as we can appreciate remains of red pigment in the vegetal decoration on surface.

The sculpture of Saint Mary Magdalene decorated the entrance of the church of Santa María Magdalena, in Zaragoza. Its style shows the influence of Flemish art in the Aragonese art of the XV century. Beyond this glass window, we see the staircase built 18th century during the palace extension towards south. This extension was initiated by enlightened Archbishop Benardo Velarde y Velarde, also known as “Father of the Poor”. He decided to begin a series of architectonical works to generate employment in a moment in which poverty reigned in society. This staircase is the access to the archbishop’s palace reception zone from 16th century.
