█ The Dukes of Feria
This adventure begins at the imposing Palace of the Dukes of Feria
, a castle which today is a National Parador Hotel.
It was commissioned in 1437 by the first Count of Feria, Lorenzo II Suárez de Figueroa
, and work finished in a record time of 6 years. Although it outwardly appears to be an unassailable fortress, it was actually planned as a stately home in the Gothic style, with Mudejar decoration. Highlights include the imposing Keep
, the Golden Room
, the coffered ceiling
of the Chapel and the views from the battlements
Over the main door of the fortress, we can see two noble Coats of Arms
, and in the one on the right we can see some ferocious animals. Write the name of these animals
to continue the adventure.
