Hall of Ambassadors' Dome

Seville City Council

Seville City Council
Sevilla, Spain

The Hall of Ambassadors was the main hall of the palace, used as a throne room of King Don Pedro I, where he received important personalities of his time.

It’s a squared room, similar to the Muslim “Qubba" in which the square symbolizes the earth and the dome would be the Universe.

A decoration of combed muquarnas forming a star, joins the square with the circle.

The balconies in wrought iron were carried out under the reign of King Philip II, at the end of the XVI century.

In the frieze that runs along the top of the room, it appears the Spanish monarchs portraits, painted by Diego de Esquivel in 1599.
