Emblematic buildings in Madrid III: Salesas Convent

The convent of Salesas Reales is one of the most outstanding and beautiful architectural landmarks that the city of Madrid has to offer. Originally founded by Queen Bárbara de Braganza in 1748 as a boarding school and residence for young people who belonged to the upper class. She and her husband, King Ferdinand VI, are buried in this building. At present, however, the parish of Santa Barbara and the Supreme Court venues are located at this site.

The first architect in charge of designing this convent was the French, François Carlier, although the one who directed, modified and finished the work was the Spanish, Francisco Moradillo. Regarding the original project, the latter included two bell towers, simplifying the original idea and minimising the excessively decorative parts. The neighbourhood in which it is located is very beautiful and occupied by residents and investors, since it is central and constitutes an ideal location to live in and enjoy the city. The great number of transport links and the ability to reach any place are, undoubtedly, highly favourable characteristics of the area. If you are thinking about buying a house in Madrid, this is a perfect setting, full of history, beautiful architecture and a great opportunity to feel the pulsations of the capital of Spain to the fullest.
