Ceramic mosaic panels on east and west arch jambs at the entrance to the Mirador de Lindaraja. The style, in which a larger pattern is outlined with colour and specific tile shapes, resembles similar mosaic dados in the Alcazar at Seville, and square panels on the south wall of the Salon de Comares. In fact, these mosaics in the mirador seem somewhat at odds with the rest of the tiled decoration here; the floor between the two jambs is a quite different pattern, involving rosettes with 16 and 8 rays, now much worn away, but the original colours are still visible at each end, next to the jambs.
