The Horse Room (Ghorfet El-faras)

The Horse Room (Ghorfet El-faras) was a stable for horses and camels, as well as all sorts of domesticated animals and livestock. The image of the Holy Family in a manger with cows, donkeys and sheep is quite accurate; up until last century animals were kept in a section of the house in even the wealthiest family estates. Unsurprisingly, this room is one of the largest we have.
