Castille played a major role in the development of the kingdom of Spain, capitalizing on its favorable location on the Iberian Peninsula. By the XI Century, it was already an independent state, challenging the presence of the Saracens who occupied the southern part of Spain. Its name is said to have been derived from the large number of castles, or castillos, located in the area. The legend of El Cid and the tale of Don Quixote provide the region with literary color.
White walls play against dark beams, rustic dark furniture and heavy red drapes. There are a number of Spanish wall hangings, and an engraving shows El Escorial, the palace of Charles V and Philip II, from where the decision was made to pursue the conquest of the New World. The door to the room’s closet was imported from Spain and is over 300 years old.
