Hall of Hercules

From the Scala Regia, arriving at the Noble Floor, you immediately find yourself in the great Hall of Hercules, illuminated by five large round vaulted windows that overlook Caprarola and the plain that extends towards the capital.
Now the openings are closed by glass, but originally they were completely open; the presence of the fountain and the glazed floor testify that this room was originally a semi-open place.
The views on the walls depict the main possessions of the Farnese: on the short sides the towns of the duchies of Castro and Ronciglione, above the gates the capitals of the duchy of Parma and Piacenza.
In the arches opposite the large windows the Four Seasons must have been painted, now almost nothing can be read
On the ceiling, whose frescoes are the work of Federico Zuccari, the legend of the mythical birth of Lake Vico, near Caprarola, is represented.
