Some friends recommended me the visit to the Royal Casino of Murcia, and they were really right, it is a very nice place, for its architecture, the elegance of its rooms and halls, and its special atmosphere. I took this photo after the entrance to the building, in the Arabic Courtyard, and here you can admire its decorative style and its richness of shapes and textures. In the background we see one of the corridors with spectacular skylights.
In the WORKSHOP you can see the fantastic skylight that crowns the vault of the Arabic Courtyard (Patio rabe).
I hope you like it.

The Royal Casino of Murcia, known habitually as Casino of Murcia, is one of the most emblematic buildings of the capital of the Region of Murcia (Spain). It is in the downtown, in the street Trapera, not far from the cathedral. The building, which construction began in 1847 is a mixture of different artistic currents that coexisted in the second half of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century in Spain and there was declared historical-artistic national monument in 1983, and nowadays is considered a good of cultural interest, with the category of "monument".
The building is the headquarters of the institution of the same name, which works as a private club. Opened to a tourist visit and other events, it is the most visited civil building of the Region of Murcia and they visit it an average of 150 000 persons/year, of whom 25 000 are foreigners.
After a period of increasing deterioration provoked by the crisis of the institution, the building has been deeply restored between the year 2006 and 2009. On the occasion of the ending of the works of restoration, the king Juan Carlos I of Spain granted to the Casino of Murcia the title of Royal.
The front of the Trapera Street, of beginning of the 20th century, is of eclectic style with modernist and historicist influences designed by Pedro Cerdn. On both sides of the principal door there are opened two glazed rooms known popularly by his aspect as aquariums.
Penetrated the door of entry and a small foyer neo-baroque, one accedes to the Arabic Courtyard, with a spectacular decoration of neo-nazar style, a work of Manuel Castaos. The starry vault that covers the court is the highest part of the building. Another dependence visitable is the library, work of 1913, in which stands out his top platform of wood carved, sustained by brackets of smelting that represent flamingoes, and the thousands of books in ancient book-bindings.
The ladies' dressing-room is decorated by feminine allegories of the goddess Selene painted on the ceiling, whereas the lounge of tea has a spectacular ceiling of stucco, totally recovered after its collapse at the end of the year 1970. The courtyard called Pompeian is of neoclassic style and has in the centre one Venus, a work of Jose Planes, on a pedestal with episodes of Zeus's life.
The most notable large-room of the building is the ballroom, a great space of double height of neo-baroque style, of 1875. The ceilings are decorated by allegories of the poetry, the painting, the music and the architecture, as well as portraits of distinguished people of Murcia. In the walls we find stuccoes with allegories of the dance. The soil is of inlaid parquet floor, and five chandeliers of Baccarats crystal give light to the lounge with his more than seven hundred bulbs.
