District of Salamanca - Recoletos
The district of Salamanca is clearly the most select and elegant district in Madrid. Its spacious and tree-lined avenues, its carefully preserved buildings, and the exclusive shops in the streets make it the most sought-after area by people with high purchasing power and real estate investors. With Serrano, Alcala and Francisco Silvela streets as its boundaries, the district of Salamanca consists of approximately 250 hectares, and is considered the highest quality residential area within the city of Madrid. Surrounded by historic monuments such as the Puerta de Alcalá, or by such outstanding places as Retiro Park, the lung of the city, the properties in this area are noted for their spaciousness, high ceilings, mouldings, and the stately entrances to the buildings. It is an area that has been able to modernise without losing its charm and its classic architecture. Here, we can find luxury flats and impressive lofts.
