Overview

Sailing view

JEME's (Chief of General Staff of the Spanish Army) working-office is chaired by a portrait of the current monarch Philip VI.

It consists on roofs decorated with classical scenes; from its centre a golden bronze lamp is hung, as a chandelier with Ferdinand VII style, belonging to the first half of the 19th Century.

"Entrada triunfal" canvas of the African Army in Madrid, by Joaquín Sigüenza and Chavarrieta, covers a bigger part of one of the office's walls, and reminds us to the African War fought by the Spanish Army in 1860.

From the other two walls, pictures of similar battle scenes by Esteban March are hung.

Over one of the tables we find a clock from the period of Alfonso XII made in France. There are two distinguished seated figures that represent two soldiers, with armours from the 16th Century.

The clock is accompanied by two setting candelabras with similar topics.

In one of the corners of the office, we can see a grandfather clock made of American oak wood.
