Points of Interest

Park and Palace of Monserrate

The excellence of the table service, essential to a palace as elegant as that of Monserrate, began in the kitchen. This was divided into two main sections: that designed for the preparation of hot meals, with its central piece an enormous stove and, on the other side, the area given over for cold dishes, such as salads and desserts. Under the stairway, there was the pantry and the wine cellar.
