Casa de Correos de Marquet y Ventura Rodríguez

Carlos III, a king who was considered to be one of the best mayors of Madrid, left his mark on a large part of the Spanish capital. After remodelling the great avenues of the city and enabling their expansion, he had architects like Sabatini to beautify a city that was constantly growing.

Recommended visits during our trip

It was the aforementioned Sabatini who signed such important architectural works as the Puerta de Alcalá, the royal stables and the gardens that bear his name and that we can visit in the Royal Palace. In addition to Sabatini, under the supervision of Carlos III, Ventura Rodríguez also managed to leave his mark on such magnificent sculptures as the fountains of La Cibeles, Neptune and that of Apollo or four seasons. They cannot be missed if you enjoy 18th century sculptures.

Another of the great architects of this period was Jaime Marquet, creator of the current seat of the government of the Community of Madrid (formerly Casa de Correos) in Puerta del Sol. Juan de Villanueva was the creator of the Prado Museum, the astronomical observatory, the Botanical Garden and the Oratory of Caballero de Gracia.

Visiting and walking through these places, we will feel as if we had travelled in a time machine, confirming the enormous importance of the aforementioned monarch in achieving his goal: a city worth visiting and living in. The European concept that Carlos III had, with good reason as he was also king of Naples and Sicily, made him firmly commit to the progress of the city and provide it with buildings worthy of its importance.

When we go to Madrid, visiting all of the above, letting our imagination run riot, and allowing our fantasy to take us wherever it wants is wonderful. Such important tourist spots are just a snippet of the city’s enormous offer. We don’t want to miss anything, and we love to let ourselves fall in love in the streets of the city.
