Saturday in the Royal Bedrooms
Very soon you will be able to visit the main rooms where the Royal Family stayed during the 1920's at the Royal Palace of Pedralbes. These rooms remained closed to the public for the majority of the 21st century.
So, as you can see in the images, the collections team is dismantling Queen Victoria of Eugenia's curtains, blinds, bedspreads and canopy bed and installing King Alfonso XIII's amenities in his room and doing a general clean up, maintenance and refurbishment of the Royal Bedrooms.
The Royal Palace of Pedralbes was the residence of Alfonso XIII and the Royal Family from 1924 until 1931. When he proclaimed the Republic, the palace became property of the City Council which then mounted the Museum of Decorative Arts; however during the Franco regime it was converted back into the residence of Head of State , General Franco, when visiting Barcelona.
