"Check Out the Cisneros House" Town Hall Square Tip by DanielF

Town Hall Square, Madrid: 20 reviews and 45 photos


The Casa de Cisneros is an urban Renaissance palace which fashions Plateresco details, a Spanish architectural style characterised by the intricate stone carvings used in the decoration. It was let built by a nephew of the famous Cardinal of Cisneros, regent of Spain after the death of the Catholic Kings.

The building currently belongs to the Municipality of Madrid and is connected with the Casa de la Villa by a fairy-tale-like 20th century stone bridge. As far as I know, the interior cannot be visited either.
