The next room has quite a strange name : "Kemenate der schoenen Lucia" / the room of the beautiful Lucy. According to some old ledgends , Lucia was the lovely mistress of a count living in Gruyeres castle during the 17th century.
In any way this room is almost round and was built into one of the towers of the castle, decorated with some great tapestries and you will also see the washing-table for Lucy in my 3rd pic !
