Chapter 19: The gallery or passage of stained glass windows

This glazed gallery, a space of passage and originally without enclosures, became a closed area as part of the renovations decided by Roque Sáenz Peña around 1910. This president was the only president who used Casa Rosada as a permanent home. For this reason, the windows were intended to protect their family intimacy.

The work was entrusted to the French architect Norberto Maillard, who designed and had to build in France, France the stained glass windows for the enclosure.

The floor is the original, polychrome English stoneware, the same that is found in various open spaces of the House. Along the gallery, there are carved heaters made of cast material, from the beginning of the 20th century.
