LOS MADRAZO is located in the central district of Madrid, one of the most charming and dynamic districts of the capital. The undoubted historical and cultural value of the Barrio de las Letras, is joined by its attractive commercial offer and its location between emblematic points of the city, such as the Parliament building, the Bank of Spain, numerous museums and exclusive hotels such as the Palace or the Ritz. Its location in a quiet street is a refuge that allows you to choose between peace and rest or the hustle and bustle around.
The building is located in the famous art triangle of the Spanish capital. In the surroundings of LOS MADRAZO we find the Prado Museum, Thyssen Museum and the Reina Sofía National Art Center Museum. A real delight for lovers of art and culture. All this is added to an unmistakable and privileged frame with large green spaces, such as the Botanical Garden or the Retiro Park, authentic lung of Madrid.
Also known as the district of the literates and the muses, it owes its name to the literary activity that the neighbourhood lived in the Golden Age. Famous figures of spanish literature such as Cervantes, Quevedo, Góngora or Lope de Vega set their residence in the streets of this magical neighbourhood. In addition to a history linked to the theatre, the district served as a meeting place for intellectuals such as Jovellanos and other artists such as Goya, brothers Bécquer, Larra or Espronceda.
The street served as inspiration for the family saga of the Madrazo, renowned painters of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, who were exceptional witnesses of the Spanish nineteenth world. Through their delicate portraits they left testimony of the life of the royal family, the aristocracy and other prominent personalities of the romantic era. The street also housed the Royal Academy of Medicine and in it was born the bullfighter Rafael Gómez, better known as El Gallo.
