Sala de Dos Hermanas - Hall of the two Sisters

english Hall of the two Sisters. This hall got its name from the two very beautiful white marble slabs laid as part of the pavement. There is a fountain in the middle of this hall, and the roof —a dome honeycombed with around 5000 tiny cells which are all different, it is a magnificent example of the so-called "stalactite vaulting" of the Moors. The most impressive part of the hall is the beautiful and perfect dome of mocarabes. Its lighting was carefully considered and it receives light from small windows.

spanish El nombre de esta sala se debe a dos grandes losas gemelas de mármol que se encuentran en el suelo de la sala . El elemento más impresionante de la sala, por su belleza y perfección, es la cúpula de mocárabes que se encuentra en su techo, en la que la iluminación ha sido perfectamente estudiada, mediante la abertura de ventanitas laterales, convirtiendo la cúpula en una flor preciosa
