Itinerary B

[5] Muqarnas decorations

The ceiling, made of painted wood, consists of two rows of central coffers, with concave lobes, flanked by small square or star-shaped coffers; the system is made of alveoli and muqarnas, typical of Islamic architecture. In particular, the central aisle is decorated with muqarnas, which form the geometric structural base, starry polygons and small domes, the latter made of thin boards. In the side aisles, long panels of sloping rafters form a coffered ceiling with alternating flat and concave bands.
