Enjoy Breakfast With Views of Retiro: 

The aristocratic neighbourhood of Salamanca is the perfect place to take a stroll or move to thanks to its spectacular palaces, large avenues with shops and exclusive boutiques, beautiful gardens and more. All these sites are the work of the 1st Marquis of Salamanca who decided to spend a huge fortune on building this area back in the 19th century. 
Luxury and distinction are part of this key district of Madrid and only the most privileged can enjoy its glamour and style. Fashion designers, such as Prada and Valentino often make an appearance here, and there is also the famous Golden Mile full of spectacular boutiques. Foodies should not miss the exclusive Platea Madrid gourmet food hall located in a former cinema. 
Retiro Park is close to the neighbourhood of Salamanca. One could say that it is the lung of Madrid, one of the most visited places by the locals as it is their haven of peace and tranquility. 
Do you want to enjoy breakfast every day with views of Retiro in front of you? Then we have just what you need, a brand new exceptional penthouse located next to this huge park. The building is modern and has exclusive facilities, such as indoor heated salt water pool, spa, Turkish bath, and gym. It also has the most advanced home automation technology in the form of robotic parking, security cameras and 24-hour surveillance. 
This magnificent and luxurious home is on two floors. On the first floor, you have access to a great hallway that welcomes you to a dining room, kitchen, cloak room and living room divided into two rooms. As for the upper floor it has five bedrooms, four of them with bathroom and dressing room.

Centro is an area offering lots of attractive leisure activities: restaurants, bars, theatres, shops, boutiques, etc. We are talking about an unbeatable opportunity to take advantage of by living in a luxury home like the one we showed you. 
This property is located in the Centro district, just a few metres from the enigmatic Puerta del Sol, surrounded by other neighbourhoods of Madrid that are the hallmarks of the city: Madrid de los Austrias, Lavapiés, La Latina, Chueca, Malasaña and Letras. 
In the coming months, part of this neighbourhood will undergo changes to include a pedestrian area and limited car traffic for public transport and the residents. This will give the area a more exclusive character that one can only benefit by moving to this luxury penthouse offered by Engel & Völkers. 
The property is located in the same area as ​​Sol, on the second floor of a building that dates back to the 19th century. The property is currently divided into two clearly differentiated luxury homes equipped with the best quality fixtures and fittings. 
On the second floor to the left is door A, where you will find a 70 square metre home consisting of two bedrooms with bathrooms, a fitted open-plan kitchen and living room with direct access to a large terrace. 
The second floor on the left is door B and has 118 square metres with two bedrooms and bathrooms, kitchen, dining room, living room, and a balcony that brings plenty of natural light to the rooms.

The Palacio de los Deportes in Madrid is undoubtedly one of the most popular sites of the city, where you can enjoy a great show or an exciting sporting event. This sports centre has now become an institution and its best feature is its location, next to Goya Street, in the Salamanca district, one of the most sought-after areas of Madrid.
