Photograph of a detail from the decorative upper sections of the Court of the Infanta inside the Zaporta Palace. In the foreground is an arcade of arches supported on classical columns below which is a frieze with two medallions featuring Roman soldiers bearing swords. In the background, through an arch on the left, is a view of  painted walls. On the right is a window. Above the arches is an entablature with carved features, possibly in wood, of various designs including heraldic shields.
