"Notice the Oldest Buildings in Madrid" Town Hall Square Tip by DanielF
Town Hall Square, Madrid: 20 reviews and 45 photos
The House and Tower of Lujanes are the oldest buildings on the Town Square, and in the whole of Madrid, for the same matter. They are some of the few Medieval buildings remaining in Madrid.
They date back to the early 15th century and built, when they were built by the Lujanes, a merchant family from Aragon. The buildings fashion an understated Mudéjar style, with an impressive Gothic portal with a carved string around the door, as it was the fashion in Castile in those years.
These buildings currently host the Royal Academy of Politic and Moral Science and, as far as I know, cannot be visited.
Address: Mayor Street
