 Chapter 20: The France or Honor Staircase 

It bears this name because on its landing an important gobelin is exhibited, a gift from the French Republic to the  Argentine Republic  for the centenary   of May 25, 1810   . It was woven in the Gobelin Manufacture in Paris, on cardboard by the painter  Alfredo Roll , represents   General San Martín  mounted on a white steed and guided by two winged glories.

This staircase is used by the  Prime President  and his special guests, as it is the main access to the presidential precincts on the first floor.

Like its twin, the  Italy    staircase  , retains much of the decor.on original. The ornamental motif of the walls and ceilings features trompe l'oeil moldings with Renaissance motifs. On the driveshaft, on a French style table with marble top, stands out a patinated bronze sculpture, The Last Mohicano .
