Titania`s Palace

Titania's Palace

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Titania's Palace is a miniature castle that was hand-built in Ireland by James Hicks & Sons, Irish Cabinet Makers who were commissioned by Sir Neville Wilkinson from 1907 to 1922.
Wilkinson's daughter Gwendolyn claimed to have seen a fairy running under the roots of a tree, in a wood beside their home at Mount Merrion House. It is said that Gwendolyn felt sorry for the fairies, who have to live in underground caves.
The palace consists of 18 rooms and salons, which contain hand-carved mahogany furniture. There are 3000 tiny works of art and miniatures from around the world on display inside the palace. The palace was purchased at auction in London in 1978 by Lego, and was displayed in Legoland, Denmark for many years. The current location of Titania's Palace is at Egeskov Castle in Denmark.

I midten av alle rommene er det en stor hage man kan se om man titter gjennom vinduer og dører i bakveggene på rommene

    I find no words to describe it.How you should have enjoy! I saved the pictures for looking at in more detail and more calm.
    The central painting of the chapel seems Immaculate Conception by Murillo and the little chuch there and looks like the Porziuncola of Assissi.
