Silves Castle - Architectures - Interior


On the second floor of the Governor's residence, there are two halls covered in painted wood. One of these halls includes a painting of royal arms, framed in shells and acanthus leaves, while on the four lateral panels, are military "trophies" comprising suits of armor, flags, lances, canons, muskets and drums. In the other hall is an allegory of Mars flanked by figurative and floral medallions.

In the military square, and alongside the southwest wall, are the vestiges of a house, presumably the residence of Prince Henry (when he was the alcalde of the Algarve), that includes foundations in dirt, a stone staircase (with a sigle on one flight), a spacious living room with the remains of a vaulted ceiling, olive oil press and pesto.

Famous quotes containing the word interior:

    Prose is architecture, not interior decoration, and the Baroque is over.
    Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961)

    Men expect too much, do too little,
    Put the contraption before the accomplishment,
    Lack skill of the interior mind
    To fashion dignity with shapes of air.
    Luxury, yes but not elegance!
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    Though the railroad and the telegraph have been established on the shores of Maine, the Indian still looks out from her interior mountains over all these to the sea.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
