AUDIENCE ROOM

With its official atmosphere, this was where Luís I dealt with affairs of state. Reception day was Thursday.
At Christmas and Carnaval, the atmosphere became rather more relaxed, with Maria Pia organising parties here for Prince Carlos, Prince Afonso and their guests.
Ceiling: Aurora bringing General Happiness and Abundance; Truth and Justice are at the chevets; Cirilo Wolkmar Machado; c. 1815.
