Through the entrance door and a small neo-Baroque lobby, you access the Arabiam Courtyard, whose spectacular neonazari style decoration required more than 20,000 sheets of gold leaf.
It is also worth noting the library, in which stands out its upper grandstand of carved woods, supported by casting brackets depicting flamingos and the adjoining ladies’ room that is decorated with female allegories of the goddess Selene painted on the ceiling.
The Ballroom is perhaps the best known and most splendid witness if the social life of Murcia for more than a century
It's neo-Baroque in style. The valuable paintings that embellish it - four midwives in the clouds - represent Music, Sculpture, Painting and Architecture. Four medallions represent the illustrious children of Murcia: Romea, Salzillo, Floridablanca and Villacís.
It is also worth noting the billiard room, and two meeting rooms with huge windows to the Trapería Street which the Murcians, with the fine humor that characterizes them, nicknamed 'las Peceras' (fishbowls).
