Plaza de la Villa: Madrid’s Medieval Plaza (Magnificent Madrid Series 10)

Plaza de la Villa
Madrid’s Medieval Plaza
Magnificent Madrid Series 10 

The Plaza de la Villa is one
of Madrid’s loveliest plaza.

Surrounded on by well preserved
Madrid-style baroque architecture,


…it was the former seat of Madrid’s
government during the Middle Ages.

The 17th-century Habsburg-style baroque
former town hall, with Herrerian slate-tile
spires still stood on the west side of the park.

On the other side is the Casa de los Lujanes,
a Gothic building whose tower was believed
French monarch François I was imprisoned
after his capture in the Battle of Pavia in 1525.

Plaza de la Villa is one of Madrid’s
best-preserved historical monuments
and worth a visit for Madrid tourists.
