El Palacio de las Moreras was certainly a magnificent building, located 50 km (31 miles) from the center of Solis, it was situated in a rather rural part of the country in stark contrast the bustling capital city. Las Moreras, like so many other civic buildings, was originally built as a home-away-from-home for the Aurarian Kings. It didn’t take long after the Revolution for the Republican Government to seize it and immediately convert it into a residence for the President.
However, Las Moreras was not a government building in the sense of active functions of the Republic’s Executive Branch being done there. Occasionally, Presidents would host meetings there, but for the most part it was a quiet, large, and old relic of the old Empire.
While a symbol of the old empire may have been an odd choice to host the inaugural summit of the Pan-Aurarian Council, the beauty and seclusion of the building made it an ideal location. It was the Revolutionaries that secured the freedom of the Aurarian colonies and brining their representatives to a building where their former Kings slept was a poetic justice the Aurarians found fascinating.
President Sanabria himself was present at Las Moreras to welcome the representatives of the Aurarian countries, as was Diego Esteban de Ossorio, a retired Natalian Ambassador who would serve as the Aurarians’ permanent representative on the Council.
