Ceiling of the Salón de Embajadores (Hall of Ambassadors)
The Salón de Embajadores was King Don Pedro’s throne room and this where he received emissaries and prominent people of his time. Undoubtedly, it is the most elaborately decorated room in the Pedro I Palace. Adding to its beauty is the perfect symmetry with which it was built and decorated. The square-shaped room is symmetrical about both the principal axis.
As you can see from the image, the view of the ceiling is stunning. The high ceiling is ornate with Mudéjar-style decoration. Enclosing the perfectly circular shape is an octagram, a star-shaped polygon with eight angles, which is also a hexadecagon (a polygon with 16 sides).
