Controlling Nature and bringing it inside the house became fashionable in the 19th century, leading to the creation of winter gardens within palatial interiors. In a highly original manner, this room’s walls and ceiling were lined with alabaster, the gift of the Viceroy of Egypt, used by Possidónio da Silva to carry out the works at the time of the royal marriage in 1862. A place for leisure and relaxation, birthday parties for the princes and royal family, dinners were frequently held here, served on a table set around the Carrara marble fountain.
