THE AREA SURROUNDING THE IMPERIAL 17 APARTMENT IN MADRID.
The Imperial 17 apartment is ideally situated in the heart of the "Madrid of the Austrias". This neighbourhood owes its name to the Habsburgs who ascended to the Spanish throne in the XVI century before being replaced by the House of Bourbon at the beginning of the XVIII century. This was a long period in which the city was enriched with the construction of numerous palaces and monuments. The incredible architecture of the area reflects this historic period. This is a very elegant neighbourhood filled with interesting sites.
