A hall spanning several stories
On the ground floor, alcoves, water basins and the cool blue and white tiles are reminiscent of a grotto, while the warm stucco marble and the mythological ceiling paintings on the top floor highlight the ceremonial hall. The walls are covered in blue and white tiles, which are repeated throughout the entire palace. The simple, lovingly painted animal and landscape motifs were created to imitate the famous Delft glazed earthenware. These Dutch ceramics copied the popular blue and white porcelain imported from China, which could not be produced in Europe until 1710.
