MADRID OF THE HABSBURG

The Madrid of the Habsburg era ”El Madrid de los Austrias” is how Spaniards call the part of the city that was blooming when Spain had an Empire stretched to the Philippines. With King Charles V, the importance of Madrid grew, but it was his son Philip II who made it the capital. The visit to this era’s buildings mainly in Renaissance and Baroque styles, it is perhaps some of the most impressive sites that Madrid has to offer.
