The staircase France or Honor: It bears this name because on its landing there is an important gobelino.
It bears this name because on its landing there is an important gobelino, a gift from the French Republic to the Argentine Republic for the Centenary of the May 25, 1810. It was woven at the Manufacture of Gobelins in Paris, on cardboard by the painter Alfredo Roll, representing General Saint Martin riding 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 her twin, the ladder Italy, retains much of the original decor. The ornamental motif of the walls and ceilings has trompe l'oeil moldings with Renaissance motifs. On the driveshaft, on a French style table with marble top, stands out a sculpture of patinated bronze, The Last Mohican.
