The antechamber of the Emperor’s Chambers leads to an open air gallery.

From the Gallery on the right, projecting from the wall, the Abu-I-Hayyay Tower can be seen. It is unique in that it disrupts the structural consistency of the Alhambra towers. The inside of the tower conserves an intimate pavilion to which the famous “stove” was added. The outside of the gallery, which is in the Italian tradition, replacing the original zenithal lantern, came to be known as the “Queen’s Robing Room”.
