Hearst Castle: Master Bedroom

This is Hearst's master bedroom.

It's said that he was not religious, but he loved religious relics and art. It is said that he was particularly drawn to the image of the "Madonna and Child" -- a reoccurring theme that you will find throughout the Estate.

Each of these panels of art in this ceiling were said to be removed from "The House of Jews" in Spain and retrofitted and restored for Hearst.

Above, Hearst's walk-in closet.

And lastly, his master bathroom. The tour guide stated that these were very modern bathrooms at the time of construction. I think it's pretty clear to say that Hearst loved to show off his opulence -- these are two-toned marbled panels.
