Inside the Palace

We were not allowed to take photos inside the palace but it was so awesome we scanned these photos so you can get the idea. But even the photos can't show the grandeur (gaudiness?) of this place.

Above is the Grand South Stair. It is sumptuously decorated and paneled in marble.

The Great Hall of Mirrors

Longer, wider, and higher than the original in Versailles, the room has 33 chandeliers and 44 candleabra, ornamental vases and tubs for orange trees.
