Walking down the aisle surrounded by so much history
This palace, built towards the end of the 11th century as a medieval castle, began acting as a fortress until the 18th century when, under the orders of Luís de Borbón, Virgilio Rabaglio occupied and transformed the palace.
The palace wasn’t bought (for the Archbishop of Toledo) until the 19th century by Godoy, who then sold it to the royals. It was then auctioned off in 1869 and passed on to belong to the descendants of the Duke of Tovar, the Figueroa Melgar family, to which it still belongs today.
This building, 500m away from the banks of the river Henares has been known to maintain its classic style in its architecture and the design of its spaces.
It has also been considered to be a monument of cultural interest due to its beautiful façade and its gardens and facilities.
