As the subject of a mythical “Lost City” legend, fantasy also is used in The Palace’s lighting conceptualization. The color and effect of ancient torch and brazier lighting in towers and on balconies was replicated by modern means. Repeatedly featured on television and travelogues, The Palace’s lighting also is the subject of numerous periodicals and publications.
