  • I didn't know mirrors were high value items back then, so having a whole wing of your palace to be covered in mirrors is a display of wealth and power. They didn't have big slates of mirrors like we do now, or even big floor to ceiling windows, so they used many smaller mirrors to cover one side of the wall, so folks can see their extravagant dresses or hats as they stroll down this hall (kind of like that adventurous friend who puts mirrors on their bedroom ceiling). It's funny to think that after so many centuries, us humans have not changed that much; we still pause to admire ourselves in front of mirrors and spend way too much time perfecting our hair before we carry on.
  • Absolutely incredible. Come early to avoid the large crowds!
