Banqueting Hall.
The roof is built as an unturned boat and there's the famous Pastrana Tapestry that portrays the Storming of Asilah.
This is one of the four tapestries, commissioned by king Afonso V to celebrate the successful conquest of the Moroccan cities of Asilah and Tangiers in 1471.
However, the original tapestry is in Spain and the Spanish goverment has "allowed" the reproductions to be made and displayed.
