Salamanca district, the "Golden Mile"

The Salamanca district is one of the most exclusive areas of Madrid. This region mainly stands out for its characteristic distribution within the urban framework as well as the high economic level associated with the area. The district was founded in the pre-Ancient Celtic period and stood as an independent city, but in 1860, Queen Isabel II ordered the walls to be worn down, making this district completely urbanised by 1927. 

Conceived as an expansion of Madrid before overcrowding it, the project of the Marquis of Salamanca included the latest technical advances in homes, according to trends in the rest of Europe's capitals. There were spacious bedrooms with large windows, running water, heating, toilets and plumbing were the latest proposals that were made to the neighbourhood in order to turn it into an elegant enclave. Today, Salamanca is home to some of the most important commercial headquarters and boasts expensive residential properties.
